It is found on the menu of almost all restaurants, and is quite liked by one and all, not just because of the simple yet warming flavour and aroma, but also because of the appearance… the dark green coloured soup often decorated with a lace of butter or cream looks enticing. The microwave is such a handy kitchen helper that you can whip up this soup rather easily at home! remember that pepper is what brings out the characteristic flavour of this north indian delicacy, so make sure the shaker is well-loaded with freshly pounded pepper.
