Cabbage Curry Soup

As readers of this blog know by now, we simply LOVE home-made soups. And keep experimenting with various flavours and textures like Apple Soup which was (rather still is) a runaway hit – Apple and Soup, who knew right??!! Or the Cheddar and Burnt Garlic Cauliflower soup which is such hit during winters.

We are quite miffed that almost 99% of the soups made at home is Vegan and 100% of them Gluten Free and very low fat.  As the new year is well onto us, making these soups and low cal dishes is part of the #HealthyMe2023 challenge we have embarked upon.

    This oil free cabbage curry soup sounds insanely delicious. I liked the idea of adding sambar powder. This is the soup I need right now Kalyani. Can’t wait to make it at home.
