    One of my favourite soups, spicy and full of flavour. Made it many many times and I keep coming back to it. Sometimes I omit leek as it is not easy to get where I live but the soup is still very tasty. Thank you for posting this recipe!

    I founf this recipe in a series of cookbooks entitled "Around the World: Taste of India" with some minor changes. It called for 6 spring onions in place of the shallots and leek, omitted the chili flakes, and used water instead of vegetable stock. I made this recipe as written in my book but took your suggestion of using vegetable stock instead of water. My recipe also called for straining the soup after cooking - we did this and added some of the vegetables afterwards to make this more hearty. This was a flavourful soup that I will definitely make again, although next time I will put in only 1/2 teaspoon of pepper as 1 teaspoon was too peppery for us. Thanks for posting.
