    How to proceed

    1. Reheat both the soups separately.
    2. Cut piece of foil or butter paper of a length equal to the diameter of the serving soup bowl and place it in the centre of a serving soup bowl.
    3. Carefully spoon both the soups on opposite sides of the foil.
    4. Gently remove the piece of foil so that both the soups have a line of differentiation.
    5. Repeat with three other bowls.

    1. If the curds are sour, add 1/4 cup milk to the curd and potato soup.
    2. Both the soups should be thick so that they do not mix easily before they are served.
