Barley Vegetable Soup

Mumbai experienced its first rains today for this season. Wanted to celebrate it with something steaming hot. This delcious barley veg soup was perfect for the occasion.

Wherenever I buy vegetables I have a habit of  keeping some portion of each veggie aside. This helps me to make different variety of mix vegetables. Sometimes I make chinese stir fry or a  veg curry. So today decided to make this  vegetable soup with some barley to welcome the rains.

 This made our today's dinner light and still healthy n filling.  Loved this delcious soup. It served my purpose of eathing nutritious and yet a delcious light meal. Hope you all too like it.
