A popular indian soup that simply cannot be missed when talking of an authentic north indian menu! this soup revels in the tangy flavours of its main ingredient, the ubiquitous tomato! a mixture of besan, salt and water is cooked along with the tomato puree for a creamy thickness. A tempering of curry leaves, mustard and cumin seeds in ghee sets this apart from the regular tomato soup and gives it its characteristic flavour. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot with assorted papads.
