Winter is here, rainy season is here. Am getting soup recipe requests. I take this opportunity to make soup and have it too. As I am not at all a fan of soup, also don’t consume the needed veggies, nutrients. I am not sure how many soups I will try, but sure this one is a random find with the ingredients I had in hand after trying palak chana.

Hand full of baby spinach and cooked chana were there, so immediately made this soup for lunch. The curried chickpeas roasted crisp is the highlight ingredient in this soup. I loved it a lot. Now lets jump into beetroot soup preparation.
