Indian Yogurt Soup


We Indians, yes, I am one all right,  don't we love our Indian soups (Dhal Vegetable Soup & Indian Onion Soup Spinach Tomato Soup)? Yes please. Of course. I can also strongly vouch that no other Indian soup can comparatively trend real close to our magical, healthy and nourishing Rasam/Indian Pepper Soup, I might as well include the healthy or not so healthy Sodhi/Indian Coconut Milk Stew. Indian soups by far, I think I may have told you before, though I can't exactly right now remember if I did, never mind, let me repeat myself again. No harm done. Indian soups are usually light and runny, for a typical Indian meal, we Indians actually prefer to drench our soups over rice. Akin a gravy dish for us, Indian soups I believe can stand at par alongside Chinese, Malay and Thai soup (Chinese Chicken Herbal Soup, Mushroom Yee Mee Soup, Old Cucumber Soup, Chinese Burdock Soup, Tom Yam Seafood SoupChinese Chicken Watercress Soup Fish Bendi Soup), but I think better not be compared to Western style thick soups (Asian Green Peas SoupPumpkin Garlic Soup  & Basil Tomato Soup).


I shall now showcase to you on how to make this vegetarian Indian Yogurt Soup? Yogurt in a soup? Yes please, don't doubt yogurt and don't doubt me, yogurt is an amazing, superb, fantastic and marvelous ingredient (Prawn Yogurt Salad & Mint Yogurt Chutney/Dip) for Indian soups, as well as for gravies/curries. I vouch (Mutton Devil CurryIndian Chicken StewFish Curry BrinjalPotato Green Peas Curry & Cauliflower Curry). This Indian Yogurt Soup evidently is the prove. Go ahead foodies, go ahead and replicate my recipe. I strongly believe that you won't be disappointed. Why should you? I believe all of you will, potentially, joyously tuck into it, which can be paired alongside Spinach Cumin Stir Fried, Stir Fried Cabbage Prawns, Long Beans Coconut Gravy, Tandoori Chicken, Masala Raisin Chicken, Curry Leaves Potato Chips, Masala Tofu, Ghee Almond Rice, Curried Potatoes or Fish Puttu. Massively tempting right? I know. 

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, just for heating through only. 
Remove from heat and keep aside.
Fry ingredients for tempering and tip over soup.
Stir to combine in. 
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support will rocket my success. Thank you everyone.

  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 :)
