A slow cooking process lends this Brown Stock an amazing flavour and rich aroma, while a wise combination of veggies gives it a pleasant brown tinge, which radiates to the soups that this stock is used in.

You will enjoy the appetizing flavour of tomatoes and onions as well as the fresh and sweet flavour of spring vegetables like carrots and French beans. Although it does not have a significant flavour, bottle gourd gives this stock a nice texture and adds to the volume too.
