We really liked this soup. I used less salt and cayenne and subbed broth for the water. I also omitted the cardamom/cloves/cinnamon since there is quite a lot of that flavor in the garam masala I use. I used the full amount of the turmeric and thought it gave the soup a great base flavor. Everything was very harmonious and it was comforting on a cold night.
