Mixed Veg Lemon Soup

708

A classic recipe from our Indian cuisine which is a favourite for many. You can say its a crowd pleaser. The vegetables used here are some new age vegetables like mushrooms and babycorn. Baby corn gives a crunch texture to this healthy and nutritious soup. Its so comforting to have this warm soup with little extra pepper when suffering from cold or flu! I have kept the spice level at minimum as i am not fond of spices , you can adjust the spice according to your taste.

I use ghee in most of my soups instead of butter as first of all ghee that i used is homemade and is good for sauteing and frying as it releases less toxins when heated as compared to butter. Ghee gives a nutty flavour as well
