The basic foundation seems a very good idea, I'll try it this week. Some ingredients are not available in my country (Belgium) but I'll use my creativity to find similar vegetables.

"In India they have his fabulous hot spicy soup called "rasam". It can be eaten as appetizer, main dish with rice, side dish, and as flu remedy, as no virus survives this tasty combination of healthy spices and herbs in rasam very long. Here is the recipe:"

Ooh this recipe sounds yummy! Thanks! I had to do a search, but I found a simple recipe for the rasam powder called for so it is readily doable;

3/4 cup coriander seeds (dhania)
1/2 cup cumin seeds (jeera)
1/2 cup red gram lentils (tuar dal)
1/4 cup peppercorns
6 red chillies
