Most of the days my lunch menu is an elaborate one with rice, chapathi, gravy and a vegetable as hubby comes home for lunch all days. Lately had been craving for some soup and found a perfect day to prepare and enjoy. It had raining since yesterday and being a sunday too hubby had left very early to his office on work and informed earlier that he will not be home for lunch. I did not want to enter kitchen and start with my preparations as was very lazy and tired, so instead made this soup and enjoyed having and for kids just gave their fav Mac n Cheese.
