A healthy and tasty soup prepared with mixed vegetables and other spices. I learned this soup recipe from my mom during my recent visit to India. I used to prepare this soup for her almost every day as she had a medical condition which requires a specific diet to follow. It is a really nutritious soup as it contains all the vegetables and healthy spices. People who suffer from anemia, diabetes and other medical conditions can drink this soup as a part of their daily diet.  Also, people who live in the cold countries may prepare this healthy soup during the winter season, which helps them stay warm and cozy.
