It’s comforting cozy & the perfect way to end a cold winter’s night..

Cornflour is the key here, to convert a normal soup of  your home into a restaurant style one.. Onion & garlic are optional here, if you don’t like it in your soup you can totally skip them. But to get that authentic taste like your favorite restaurant, then do not skip it..

My soup is in bit of a spicier side because I’ve added both black & white pepper. Actually white pepper is very good for eyes. You can skip any of the pepper if you want to. No problem.

I also like flavors of different herbs in my soup like, cinnamon, bay leaves, dried oregano, Italian mixed herbs or so.

Let’s see how to prepare this dreamy creamy soup..
