Recipe Notes

  • You can add carrots and beetroot too.
  • I do not prefer adding the corn flour slurry but if you want then add just before the soup is done and cook for a minute or two. Do not over cook after that.
  • While making the bread croutons add the butter for better crispy texture, else they will remain soft.
