Minced Chicken Cabbage Soup). Said before, I can't though remember how many times I have repeated like a parrot that rainy day is a soupy day. Must be my age if at all I have repeated over and over again. Sorry followers of "cook with nava-k". Age does make a difference these days for me, okay, here comes cruising this vegetarian Indian style soup (Pumpkin Soup & Vegetable Soup). Don't know for sure if Indians use corn for soups, I did it my way anyway. Corn, white tofu, spices, butter, spring onion and coriander leaves. Feel free to slurp in everyone. Bye for now.
2 (abt 400g) whole corn - break into 3 or 4 portions/pieces
1 (abt 80g) tomato - chopped
1 piece white hard tofu - cut into cubes
2 green chillies - remove seeds and chopped
