Cabbage Soup Recipe
I make cabbage soup more often than any other soups as it’s super easy to prepare and taste good. Most of the time half of my cabbage goes in making soup, there are many ways this soup can be made, you can add any other vegetable of your choice or even sambar powder. But this plain soup goes well with any spicy pasta.
I like to make my own soups rather using readymade versions, once you get hang of making soup there’s no looking back and for most of the soup you can follow same recipe, there’s no rocket science here. I never thought of posting this simple soup recipe but this is for one of the friend whom keep asking me to post.
