Soups are great appetizers which enhance one's appetite. Thats why it is served prior before meal and refreshes the soul with the very first slurp. Soup an be usually made with any combination of vegetables or meat, thick or thin, spicy or mid. This tomato soup is completedly home style and spicy which I learned from my Amma.
