The temperature here in Gurgaon is low enough to make me want to crawl into my oven. That’s why soups are my favourite go-to meal in a bowl this winter. Since I make a meal of it, just broth soups don’t cut it. It has to have some body and full of flavour. So far my roasted beetroot and tomato soup and carrot and lemongrass soup have been hits. This soup though was inspired from Nigella Lawson’s after I saw a picture she posted on Instagram. I absolutely loved the bright yellow colour and wanted to cook something similar.
The last few days of December was spent with my husband and my families. First four at my parents’ in Bangalore and another four at his in Mumbai. I can’t even begin to tell you how much we ate and what all we ate. Maybe in another post I’ll elaborate. But once I was on the plane back to Gurgaon, I knew I ate to my heart and stomach’s content and that I had to go easy once I was home. I’m slowly cutting down on sugar and other carbs like wheat and rice. No more chocolates and carb heavy meals every day.
