At this time of year, many of us try to eat more healthily, so this month we’ve got a bright, fresh-tasting chicken broth flavoured with ginger and lemon, both of which are believed to have healing properties in ayurvedic medicine. Turmeric (a key ingredient in our HALDI BLEND) is also revered for its health benefits, and here it adds a vibrant colour and earthy flavour to this satisfying soup.

Super nice tasty soup, perfect comfort food on a dull day. I did find that the pearl barley soaked up all the water, so I added extra to keep it more like a soup.

We're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed this lovely, warming soup - happy spicing!
