Mixed Vegetable Soup - Post From A Reader

Hi friends today I have a non-blogger Shafeeka who is going to share a yummilicious treat with us. Am sure all of you must have come across her recipe earlier at my space, Egg rasam and she got good responses too. I tried her egg rasam and it was too good. In case you have missed, check out her egg rasam here, its just a click far. Today Shafeeka is going to share with us a very delectable  and tasty vegetable soup that is served to pregnant women and breastfeeding moms. It looks so delicious, the flavors added must make it taste really good and moreover seems like a very easy one too, I will be trying this very soon. She has sent this recipe to link it to the 60 Days To Christmas event. Thanks again Shafeeka for such a nutrition rich soup recipe.
