I made this soup for the first time when I was in one of my experimenting moods. I looked around the house and saw a few things lying around that looked good and in they went into the soup.
All of the ingredients are easily sourced and no special spices are required. It is so good topped with the spicy lime and chilli yoghurt.
You can literally make this soup in under 20 minutes. It’s the perfect after work dinner that is both filling and delicious.
