Soups are a healthy choice, all of us know that. Making Soups is a tough choice and if we opt for easy steps, it becomes a quick recipe and the outcome is Taste with Health. This soup has a veg french touch to it as its simple, full of potatoes and I experimented it with India’s superb flour: Besan. So This week My Father-in-law had seasonal cough and cold. Generally, I make Besan Sheera for all to avoid these infections. Given his age, I avoid giving him too much of ghee and sugar so I came up with Namkeen version of it and you wont believe, his cold vanished the next morning. I myself was surprised to learn again that our Indian food is self-sufficent for maintaining health and its about mixing the right ingredients with right ratios. By the way, with ratios I am not that good as was my Mother-in-law. I always wondered how her food tastes always much better than mine and years later I got to learn that its the right ratios placed with right ingredients and at right time. Hope you enjoy it!!

- Wash all the vegetables under tap and chop them in small pieces.
- Heat Ghee in an Open Pan with lid. Add besan an saute it on simmer. Keep roasting it to avoid burnt up taste. It takes 5 min. Adding ghee will ensure it a slow process and taste will also be better.Once roasted, take besan out in a bowl.
- Add some ghee and put onions and garlic and cook them till raw aroma goes off.
- Add Potatoes and Water to it.
- Add Roasted Besan,
- Boil it once and then add water as per the desired consistency. Cover it with lid and simmer for 15 min. Keep sauting in between.
- Add salt and Black Pepper and serve it hot with breads.
Since we are using Besan, consistency would be thick so you can add more water if need be.
