The combination of veggies in the basic brown stock is such that it gives a light tinge of brown to the soup it goes into. Packed with nutrients from healthy veggies like bottle gourd, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, and more, this is indeed a desirable addition to your soup.

good stock! rich in flavour and nutrition, though not very different from the white stock!
