Chi Al Meh/ Manipuri style vegetable soup

This north eastern state has limited options on vegetarian dishes like most of its neighbouring states. I came across the recipe of vegetable soup which hardly seemed like a recipe. However, the tips about using specific vegetables and the lack of any spice made me think about the taste. It is like consuming the most abundant natural flavors and making a meal out of it.

The name Chi Al Meh means vegetable soup. Isnt it intersting..






Ingredients
2 onions roughly chopped
1 capsicum red chopped
1 capsicum yellow chopped
1 cup chopped mushrooms (any variety)
1 cup blanched and finely chopped spinach/ mustard leaves (almost pureed)
1 cup other vegetables of your choice
1 tspn ginger paste
green chilly paste, soy sauce  optional and to taste
salt to taste
Method
1) In a large pot, add all the vegetables and ginger paste.
2) Boil it for 10 min and add your seasonings
3) Remove and serve. 
4) I added some boiled noodles to make it a complete meal.

It is lot better than some of the other recipes I have seen online, just steamed veggies with no seasonings. :)
Ginger-chili paste must have made the difference and given the soup a beautiful flavor.

As long as it has green chili and soya sauce, it can't be that bad. Don't know how it tasted but looks delicious.
