In this cold weather, what could be better than piping a hot yummy Soup. Today I am posting light and full of flavor recipe for a restaurant-style lemon and coriander soup.

I tried my tongue on this amazing soup in one of the best Indo-Chinese restaurants in our area and fell totally in love with it as flavor from lemon, coriander and veggies refresh me. I just tried the same soup over the weekend and it comes out very well.

This soup has the delicate flavors from the stock and vegetables.  Carrot gives it a mild sweetness whereas lemon, cilantro gives an aromatic flavor in the soup.

Lemon is the best source of vitamin C, helps weight loss and cilantro too have numerous health benefits like aids digestion, lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol.

Veggies: I have added winter veggies’ sitting in my fridge like cabbage and carrot. Feel free to add any veggies of your choice like a mushroom, baby corn, beans. This soup is clear soup so make sure it should have more water content.

you can check the vegetable stock recipe on the blog:



  • Onion 2 tbsp. (finely chopped)
    Cabbage 2 tbsp. (finely chopped)
    Carrot 2 tbsp. (finely chopped)
    Green chilies 1 tsp.

1. Instead of using vegetable stock, you can add water too but Vegetable stock gives a distinct flavor to the soup.
