ABOUT Tomato & Coconut Soup RECIPE

This is actually a Maharashtrian delicacy that my mother in law often made for us. So when she was visiting us recently I begged her to make it again and wrote down the recipe. Trust me if I had my way I would make this every single day because it is so delicious and heartening.
