Garlic almond soup
Garlic almond soup, is a perfect one for this cold weather. Last year i have given this recipe for Kungumam thozi supplement themed "soups and salads". This recipe was a super hit at our house. I tried this with bottle gourd when i gave this for the supplement book. While i was doing this again for the post last week, i don't have bottle gourd at home and so replaced it with potato. the soup was quite thick and creamy and yum. Name it a creamy potato soup or almond soup or garlic soup, it is a flavourful soup and quite filling too. Try this out at home and let me know how it turned out. I am out of station for the next 10 days. I have scheduled few simple recipes for the next few days. Will respond to your queries and mails once i am back. Thanks for your kind understanding.

  1. Instead of potato you can add lauki|bottle gourd or even cauliflower too.
