Mushroom Soup

Even in this sweltering heat, one weekend evening, we went to a small local restaurant to have something very light and ordered steaming hot mushroom soup served in a paper cup. It was thick, delicious and satisfying. Since then, I wanted to try it and I finally made it.

*I haven’t added any veg stock as I ran out of it. Hence I replaced it with water and a bit of cream for creamy flavor.
