This recipe is in continuation of my previous recipe (Mint Syrup for cold and flu). This soup is an instant energy booster for kids who are unwell, its the vegetarian replacement for the famous chicken soup. Its light and refreshing and the ingredients help in boosting the body’s immune system and fighting cold and flu.
I also remember my mom always preparing this soup when we used to visit someone in hospital. She used to make a flask full of this soup. Its healthy and easy to consume especially when your unwell.
