  2. What a strange Coincidence !!! i just made Asparagus Coconut curry and Tomato Rasam … i am going to try this … for sure … Soups are great during Winter months and Dolly , you specialize in different varieties … Broccoli, Zucchini , Celery /Carrots etc …. May i add my Milagu Tanni soup ? Which is nothing but our Black / Pepper /Zeera Tamarind Rasam for sick days …. ?
