~ Water quantity depends on how you like your soup, I like little thick so I added around 4 cups of water. 

~ You can strain the puree before boiling, I normally don’t do this for most of the soups.

~ Discarding all the garam masala items used is important.  If you don’t discard all masala and grind it then soup will be very spicy and this spiciness is very sharp you won’t be able to drink it, this is from my experience!

~ You can do the cooking in a open pan instead of pressure cooker. 

~ You can add 1/2 tbsp of butter while boiling soup.

Have a nice day ~~
