I like to cook and eat natural, healthy, and tasty foods, and I enjoy sharing recipes from my native Indian cuisine.
A Yummy Gravy Soup With a Strong Garlic Flavor
Drinking a watery soup is common. But to have a garlicky, rich, and gravy soup is a luxury. Sweet corn is a favorite veggie for many. It attracts people with its mild sweetness and crunchy texture.
Tomato is the other major ingredient of this hearty soup. As tomatoes are roughly ground, you get boiled tomato pieces in this chowder. This soup has high fiber that makes you chew a bit and enjoy the taste slowly for a longer time.
Sauteed garlic chunks add an appetizing flavor to this chowder. To complement this, I used minced ginger. The whole combo is just fantastic. Also, this is a very nutritious soup.
Drink half a bowl of this chowder on a cold morning/evening to make yourself fresh and warm.
Here is the detailed recipe.
