    Just now made this soup and it tasted so good. I have a 2yr old daughter she enjoyed it so much. It nice to get some veggi in her diet. I used cabbage instead of carrot because my mom is diabetic and still it tasted great. I used to get the maggi soup powder and make soup but today i feel so happy and satisfied after having my soup. I came across you site accidentally but i am so excited to come across such treasure. Keep up the good work. Thanks.

    @ Shruthy
    Here I have used ‘பசலைக்கீரை’ Pasalai Keerai in Tamil. Palak can also be used.
