Again one another recipe tried from Everyday Exotic of Roger Mooking with a small alteration in ingredients. Since I don’t have duck meat at that time, I used lamb bones. The soup was delicious, would be great booster in times of sick. A very healthy, simple, easy, delicious and aromatic dish. This would be a great treat at times of winter.
