Mahbir’s Personal Touch

Healthy, delicious, and rich in flavour, root vegetable soups aren’t only for the cold winter evenings. Even during warmer days, this soup will even give Gazpacho a run for its money! Once the soup has cooled down after cooking, simply store it in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving it chilled.
