We, Indians, have adopted majority of International cuisines and moulded them by giving an Indian Tadka to it. In India, many cuisines such as Chinese, Italian, Thai, have gained popularity. However, Turkish cuisine still remains unexlored by Indian home cooks. Also, there is a strong notion that most of the Turkish recipes are non-vegeterian. But even the Turkish cuisine has few very delicious vegetarian recipes. This Turkish Soup is an Indian version of Turkish Red Lentil Soup - 'Mercimek Corbasi', which uses chopped veggies like cabbage, carrots and capsicum that are largely used in chinese soups. This soup uses a special aromatic stock that gives it a pleasant aroma and flavor.
