CARROT AND GINGER SOUP RECIPE

Soup is always welcome at my place and i always try new combos in making soups. Few years back when we went to Kottayam, we stayed in a resort and since we are vegetarian most of the time the chef prepared the meal  according to our specifications and one rainy day evening he made a carrot ginger soup and till we tasted the first spoon he was beside us waiting for our response. It was too good and he told me the recipe too as i can make it at home for kids too. Though i tried this few times never blogged the recipe and finally today i am sharing the recipeOpen-mouthed smile.
I am going for vacation from today but have scheduled some posts. For any queries , please keep posted will get back to you in  the New year 2013.
