The Burmese Samosa Curry Soup involves a bit of effort and time, but it is completely worth the effort because every spoonful is nothing short of bliss!

The Burmese Curry Soup is a classic Oriental soup with hints of ginger, garlic, whole spices and of course, coconut milk. A base of curds and besan gives the soup a luscious mouth-feel while a garnish of cabbage, bean sprouts and kala chana gives it a delectable crunch.

The second component of this awesome recipe is the veggie-packed samosa, which is made with readymade samosa patti to reduce the effort and to get a wonderfully crispy outer layer. The samosas are served in a bowl bathed in hot Burmese soup.

While you can prepare the samosas and the Burmese curry soup beforehand, just before serving you must heat the soup, garnish it, pour it on the samosas and serve it immediately to enjoy the crunch of the veggies and the samosa.

At first i thought it is such a huge recipe to make, but after trying i realised it is totally worth the effort that i have put in. The samosas in this soup tastes awesome. It is something unique. The flavour of coconut milk in the soup goes well with the samosas. The chana, cabbage and sprouts added in the end adds a wonderful crunch to the soup.
