    KVasanth's Note:

    I loved this soup growing up- such a heartwarming, nourishing soup. Now, there were some things about this soup that I didn't like when my grandmother made it, so I've tweaked the recipe (what I can remember from childhood), and it comes pretty close. This is very much a 'dump everything into the pot' soup, but it works.
