According to Padma Lakshmi (from Top Chef), this soup will cure what ails you! This is her version of a traditional South Indian soup called rasam. It's high in protein, and low in calories and carbs - although you can add rice noodles and call it a meal! The ingredients can be found inexpensively at an Indian or Asian grocery, and the taste of this fragrant broth is well worth the effort. Cook time = marinating time.
