The carrot and bottle gourd soup with rice and cheese balls is as exotic as a soup can be! this wholesome soup of carrot, bottle gourd and potatoes is quite sumptuous and can served as an appetiser or in a larger bowl as a snack in its own right. That said, the innovative twist to this soup lies in the crunchy-munchy garnish of rice and cheese balls. Make sure you drop the balls on the soup just before serving to retain the crispness.
