I think I took a long break for Thanksgiving :-) But I am back with simple soup recipe.Kiddo loves this soup. And he used to have this soup every other day when he was toddler. Still I make this soup but use this as a base for other stews. And you can add any veggies that you want in this soup. Soup is one of the best way to sneak in the vegetables for kids. :-)

This time when I made this soup, I added drumstick and masoor dhal. So here is the recipe.
