Healthy, aromatic soup which will open up your senses and enlighten your soul… The other day when I was feeling low and drained of energy, I couldn’t think of having anything but sipping a bowl of hot soup.

Yay, this is the 100th post of Cooking with Thas, let me sweeten up this post with Carrot Halwa… Among the root vegetables, I admire carrots the most. Probably, this is the only root vegetable I don’t have to always worry about cooking or baking to perfection. Just a well washed raw carrot packed with Vitamin A makes a good snack. I wasn’t aware...
