Bombay Curry Soup is a sumptuous soup with a desi flavour. With dal and rice, it is quite filling and can be served as a quick snack or a meal-in-a-bowl.
This unique soup is made by cooking dal with garlic, spice powders and tomatoes, straining the cooked mixture, and boiling the liquid till it thickens. The curry powder used to flavour the dal gives this soup a very exciting flavour, while a dash of lemon juice gives it a refreshing tanginess, which energizes your taste buds!
The Bombay Curry Soup is served in a unique style with a garnish of rice, which makes it very satiating and comforting.
