PUMPKIN SOUP RECIPE- HALLOWEEN SPECIAL

  The weather here is totally changed and almost throughout the day it is raining and I am down with cough and cold for two days and didn’t go anywhere out. When my kids and husband went for vegetable shopping to the near by shop, my daughter picked up a piece of pumpkin and wanted to make something on halloween day , today. First i thought of making Muffins,but when i opened my fridge, i noticed that the butter was over. So i opted for pumpkin soup as it will  be comforting for my throat.

  33. This soup looks delicious. This is indeed a perfect food to eat to soothe your throat and chest. By the way, I'm sorry to hear about your cough and cold. You can actually make your own homemade flu remedies like ginger tea. Just add honey to neutralize the taste.

  34. Jeyashri the soup looks delicious. Recently I happen to taste roasted peanut pumpkin soup. It was wonderful. So can I just add roasted and powdered peanut to this soup? please reply

    1. Addition of peanut sounds interesting. You can add coarsely ground peanuts as it gives a crunchy taste.Nice idea
