This unusual soup, which combines chawli and beetroot, is an interesting way to include nutrient-rich chawli in your diet. Its flavour is beautifully balanced by sweet beetroot, making it very appealing.

A unique garnish of finely chopped onions and tomatoes imparts an interesting mouth-feel to the Chawli and Beetroot Soup, and gives it a zesty flavour too. Garnish this soup just before serving so that the veggies retain their crunch.
