Added to 4 cookbooks   This recipe has been viewed 5498 times

This is an amazing combination of ingredients. Both tofu and sprouts add to the health quotient, while garlic and chilli flakes boost the flavour and routons add crunch to the soup. Make it fresh and be prepared for the magic! If tofu is not available, use paneer instead.
