Rasia Mutia. Chickpea flour Dumplings in Spiced Yogurt Broth

Rasia mutia is a yogurt soup from the state of Gujarat in the Western part of India.  It is a delicately spiced yogurt broth with chickpea flour dumplings called mutias.  The dumplings are made with day old rice, turmeric, chickpea flour, ginger, garlic, and salt.  These are then steamed and added to the yogurt broth. To prevent the yogurt broth from curdling when heated the yogurt is blended with chickpea flour that acts as rue for the yogurt soup.   A rather unusual yogurt soup that is considered “ordinary” and not worthy of serving for company, you wont find this at any Indian restaurant.  However this is a totally unique homemade soup that is delicious and healthy as well. Give it a try! Continue reading Rasia Mutia. Chickpea flour Dumplings in Spiced Yogurt Broth

Creamy Zucchini Leek Soup

Creamy tender zucchini along with green oniony leeks makes this soup the perfect light spring-inspired soup to serve in the winter.  Zucchini and leeks are so awesome together in this soup that my family emptied out the entire soup pot completely.  This soup by no means a hearty soup, but on those Sundays when all you want is a quiet bowl of soup that is not too filling maybe with a side of crusty bread and a cup of tea or a glass of wine  – this is the one to make. Give it a try! Continue reading Creamy Zucchini Leek Soup

Hot and Sour Soup

Hot and sour soup. We love this soup in our family!  Hot and sour soup has to be one of our favorite soups, but until recently I never thought of making it at home.  We get the most delicious hot and sour soup at our local Chinese restaurants that I never bothered to try.  My kids on the other hand are a lot more adventurous and ventured to make this soup at home for our Christmas dinner last month.

Leek and Loki Coconut Milk Soup

A vegan soup made with loki squash and leeks that are cooked together with coconut milk makes for a delicious creamy squash soup perfect for a low-key Sunday soup day.  Loki also called dhoodhi is and Indian vegetable found in the squash family and can usually be bought at any Indian grocery store.  It looks like a big fat long pale green colored zucchini. Just like zucchini it takes on whatever flavoring you add to it and is a very light vegetable as well.  In this soup if you can’t find loki, you can easily substitute loki for zucchini or any type of squash you like.

Sunday Soups to Sunday Salads

Happy June 2nd! June has finally brought with it warmer temperatures around here. It felt much warmer yesterday only to find out that it was barely 78 degrees! I guess with all the cool weather we have been having even 78 degrees feels warm. That’s why I had a hard time posting a Sunday Soup recipe today, as it’s going to be another warm day. For that matter, I am officially switching over from Sunday Soups to Sunday Salads starting today. Summer has finally arrived and it’s time to take advantage of all the bounty of fresh veggies at this time of year and make a few delicious and colorful salads. Welcome to a summer of Sunday Salads!

I also want to take this opportunity to share with you a story I did a while back on how our Sunday Soup tradition came about and how it has helped our family’s Sunday dinner routine. Hope you enjoy the article. Happy Sunday and have a great week ahead!
