A luxurious veggie soup, with the dynamic flavour of whole spices and the aromatic touch of saffron.

The veggie stock is thickened with a milky corn flour mixture, which gives it a very creamy mouth-feel. The generous use of saffron gives the Zaffrani Soup an attractive tinge and rich flavour too. Indeed, this soup is another example of Mughal opulence!

Accompany the soup with delicious melt in your mouth kebabs such as Moong Dal Seekh Kebab , Hare Bhare Kebab and Corn Seekh Kebab .
