Beetroot Soup

When I started to include Soup as part of our regular menu I started with Tomato soup thinking that kids will like it as that is one of the very common one. However it didn't go very well. Then I came across this recipe in Mallika Badrinath book and I did it for myself thinking that this won't go well rest of the family. When I started to have this for dinner my son asked me about this and wanted to give it a try (later I asked them what triggered the desire to try.. His answer was the color :-)). To my surprise they loved it. So this is one of our regular item for dinner
