This is the only soup amma makes with any sea food. She makes it whenever we catch cold. Nowadays its all reserved for the kids. She says its so very good and nutritious for them. Its also too delicious and since does not have anything hot its given for babies that are above 1 year old. Even my fussiest kid would drink a bowl of this without a word.
This is one of the bounty she made for her dear grand children when we had the prawns curry. Its a simple yet fabulous soup.
