TOMATO-MUSHROOM SOUP

Winter is all about piping hot soups and stews to keep you warm n’ cosy. The soups based on vegetables are nutritious, soothing and easy to make and when the healthy fungi ‘the mushrooms’ are added along with some veggies, they become incredibly tasty, creamy and silky in texture. Ginger and green garlic have medicinal effects and these aromatics provide heat to the body. Mint leaves add some fresh flavours. I give a tempering of buttery garlic and mushroom to add some flavours and this is the ex-factor which makes this soup very special

As winter sets in, I do try my hands at hot n’ healthy soups. This is part of my daily supper. Some fritters or besan cheelas along with the soup is what I love the most, especially on the wintery evenings. This is the time when you don’t want to cook much and the hot soup works at it’s best on such harsh weather
