Ajji’s (Grandma’s) Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup

CL is one of the few people I first got acquainted in blogosphere and took our relationship beyond commenting in each others blog and saying a Hi. When I was too shy in making friends, she came forward and spoke to me. Since then we have spoken hours over phone. Two weeks ago I received a call from her asking me to do a guest post in her blog. I agreed to it without a second thought. It is a pleasure and privilege to write a guest post for such a wonderful friend.

And how can I forget to mention about the food event started by Anamika of Taste Junction. This guest post is  triggered by  her brainchild event  called ‘Friendship Chain – Spread the speciality‘.  Every fortnight a blogger(host) asks another blogger friend to do a guest post in her/his blog. Then the blogger who did the guest post reaches out to another friend of him/her to do the same. And this continues. Thanks Anamika for hosting this wonderful and infectious event. I enjoyed every bit of doing my first guest post.

South Indian Chicken Soup
CL wanted me to share a Sourashtrian recipe through this guest post. Immediately I remembered my Ajji’s (Grandmother’s) chicken soup , a post that has been pending ever since I started this blog. Though it sounds simple, this particular soup has been dear to me. I always make it on special occasions or whenever I miss my Mom/Grandma terribly. This soup requires minimal ingredients and it is less spicy. Hence it is a tradition in our  family to feed it to the infants/toddlers. My grandmother makes this soup, mixes it with a bowl of rice, adds lots of love and feeds us.  She fed this to her 5 children and then to an army of her grand children. My Mom followed her footsteps and I will do the same. I wonder how a simple food like this can have innumerous memories in each one of us.

Now hop on to CL’s blog Pan gravy Kadai Curry for the Chicken soup recipe and step wise pictures.

You are awesome!!! Thanks a bunch for leaving your valuable comment. It certainly makes me happy and helps me to learn and improve.

    Ajji’s recipes are always special. There something more than the taste that is associated with it. Guess it is the memmory and the warmth with which it is made. You have made the soup looks fabulous Radhika :)
