Mint coriander leaves soup recipe - Pudina kothimbir soup

soup in a serving bowl
Mint cilantro soup recipe - Mint Coriander leaves soup is one of my favorite soups. Soup is one such dish, that one can have it at any time of any season. I recently visited a marriage reception, and tasted this soup. I found it soothing, refreshing and filling. I obtained the recipe from the chef, later tried it a few times with some modification in the quantity of ingredients. The one small change I have made in this recipe is that I've added few chopped cabbages, which gives some crunchy bites and exercise to teeth.
