It has a slight sourness from the tomatoes, so you may add more or less as mentioned in the recipe! In authentic recipes, they will not add green chilies much, but here I added 3 to 4 as we like it spicy!

I love this recipe for its simplicity! If you like such soups on your Iftar menu, this one is an addition to your recipe book!! Hope you all got some inspiration and help from me sharing recipes this Ramadan! This is the last post for this Ramadan, stay tuned for Eid Desserts!
