Soups (corn soup, chicken vegetable soup and turmeric mushroom soup) as well as salads are comfort food. Fruity vegetable salad is also an absolute nutritious snack or a meal by itself to cleanse our system. This crunchy munchy salad with apple, cucumber, lettuce leaves and blackcurrants in a simple dressing as said is nice just like that or as a side with rice, rasam, sambar or fried rice.
