The Malabar Soup

DSC02458

The Malabar soup has an audacious attitude, rich in flavor it brings the taste of India home.

Add a dollop of cream and this recipe turns into a little piece of rich paradise but in an effort to keep the weight off I used coconut milk instead and it has changed the way I will make this soup forever.

A Note for all my vegan friends I would substitute chicken with any or a combination of the vegetables below. Take your pick.

  • Carrots
  • Green beans
  • Drumsticks
  • Cauliflower
  • Brinjal/ Eggplant
  • Ladyfingers

Ingredients

  • Chopped Boneless Chicken Breast – 1 Pc.
  • Tandoori  Masala Powder  – 1 Tbsp.
