CARROT SOUP / GAJAR KA SOUP

Like carrots? You’re going to love this carrot soup recipe. It’s luxuriously creamy and full of incredible carrot flavor.

A healthy creamy soup recipe made with blended carrot mixture as its primary ingredient. You might be pleasantly surprised to learn that this creamy soup is actually made without cream. It’s a light and healthy soup.
