I am happy to say that this was the first soup I learned during my initial days of cooking. What a simple and easy recipe! I could not remember where I learned this dish from, but it is always a hit in my kitchen. This dish will always be in my list when I have guests at home.
This soup just eases out my stress when guests come because it can never go wrong. You can always adjust the taste by increasing or decreasing the quantity of ghee, milk and pepper. Garnishing the soup with spring onions is optional. If I have them, I use it. When you taste the soup, it will be difficult for you to tell that it is made of cabbage. My hubby and I would often ask our guest to find out what soup it is, and they would not able to find out at all. Cabbage lovers, who love making Simple Cabbage Curry, Cabbage Capsicum Curry, and Cabbage Kofta, please try this recipe and you will fall in love with it.
