veg clear soup

A traditional soup from ancestral diary


   This was a soup which my grandmother used to make on  a wooden fire during the rainy days.This was one of the methods adopted by our forefathers for making the kids eat vegetables and ghee,which are usually disliked by majority of the toddlers.The aroma  that spreads in the house while cooking  itself attracts the members and brings them to the kitchen .I still remember me as a kid waiting for the soup to be poured in the bowl..
Here comes the RECIPE..
