Indian Yogurt Soup


It really depends how you like to consume soups, usually for Western meals (Asian Green Peas Soup & Basil Tomato Soup), soups are great as a starter (Potato Bok Choy Soup). Even for a full course Chinese meal in restaurants, soup (Old Cucumber Kei Chi Soup) is drunk before or simultaneously while tucking into the dishes. We Indian however look and take soup in a different manner (Coriander Tomato Soup).


Generally, we generously drenched rice (Pudina Rice) with a soup, mixed it up with our fingers and eat with fried fish (Fish Cutlet & Sambal Serai Ikan Bilis), stir fried veggies (Cabbage Chana Dhal, Curry Leaves Potato Chips & Eggplant Curry Leaves) or any other side dish. Therefore, Indian soups are mostly light and watery, this soup says it all - a delectable combination of Indian spices and the must have curry leaves.  

Ingredients
(A)
1 large onion – thinly sliced
2 green chilies – cut into 3 to 4 pieces
1 tsp halba/fenugreek seeds
1 tomato – chopped
3 tbsp yogurt – lightly beaten
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
Salt for taste  
For tempering
1 tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp black mustard seeds
1-2 dried red chilies – snipped/cut into pieces
3-4 sprigs curry leaves
1 tbsp oil

Method
Add onion, chilies, fenugreek seeds, tomato, turmeric and salt in a pot.
Pour about ½ liter of water (more if you prefer).
Stir and simmer over low heat.
When soup is heated through,
Add yogurt, stir again and simmer for another 2-3 mins.
Remove from heat and keep aside.
Fry ingredients for tempering and tip over soup.
Stir to combine in.

  23. Hi Nava, your yogurt soup is very healthy. Talking about yogurt, I like Indian yogurt drinks too. Love it especially when mixed with some spices and chili and I prefer it with extra fresh onions and lots of ice cubes! Refreshing and yummy! Love your presentation and shots too. Thumbs up and cheers :)
