Vegetable stock is not only healthy to use in your soups, but also adds flavour to your soups. I am not a soup person, that is lazy to prepare soup at home. Even at restaurants, I junk eat the other starters rather than a soup. There are sometimes when I feel like having soup, then only I like to have soup. I love rich and creamy soups as well as clear soups. Recently I am loving tomato basil bisque from subway. I wanted to try vegetable stock in some soup and see the taste difference and searched for vegetable stock at stores and sadly all the top brands arent vegetarian. So I had to try myself at home. And this stock recipe is one I adapted from an Italian cook book. So it may not be an Indian style stock recipe, but sure is healthy and tasty. And I really don't know if there is Indian style stock recipe.
