Of Flavours & Tastes…

Spicy Indian Yogurt Soup !

Being Deewali,I thought of posting something very desi.India’s own soup with a very desi tadka.This is a simple,spicy yogurt soup to have anytime of the day..I love mild spices as well.Do check !


1.5 cups low fat yogurt
2 tbsp besan /gram flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp chilly powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 green chilly,chopped
salt as required

For tadka/tempering

2 tsp canola oil/vegetable oil
2 dried red chillies (upto your taste)
1 tsp cumin seeds
small piece of ginger,crushed
2 garlic cloves,crushed
1 sprig curry leaves


Mix the yogurt,water,chilly powder,turmeric powder,gram flour and salt in a blender.Strain this and shift it to a pot.Add the chopped green chillies and cook in low heat, stirring well.This process is to cook the gram flour  and blend everything well.Don’t boil your soup.Just continue stirring till thick and nice aroma spreads.Switch off.Heat oil in a small pan and splutter cumin seeds,dry chillies,ginger,garlic and curry leaves .Roast till the raw smell vanishes and pour it over the soup.Mix well and again heat the soup in law heat for 2-3 minutes.Serve hot.
