    The BEST Red Pepper Soup I have EVER tasted!!! Full of delicious flavor and health benefits as well. The asafetida is excellent for the digestive system and helps heal other ailments in the body.

    This is an excellent soup, maybe the best soup I have ever made. The flavor is amazing and you can easily substitute different spices for the recommended ones. I did cut the garam masala to 1 or 1 1/2 tsp as a Tbsp was too much for me. I did not use asafoetida. I sometimes use kalamata olives with some of the juice instead of wine and it has a great flavor. I use 1 cup of stock and 1/4 c kalamata olive juice, plus about 1/4 c chopped olives and don't add salt. Its a very versatile and delicious soup and its good hot or cold!

    I made this recipe exactly as written except decreased only the asfetida, heres why. I love & cook authentic Indian food often, most of what I know I've learned from Madhur Jaffreys books. I think the spice measurements in this were 'off' the soup was very bitter. The 1 teaspoon amount of Asfetida seemed way too much in my opinion. Most other recipes I've made contianing asfetida only require a 'pinch' of the stuff, I've heard it said many times that asfetida should be used in 'extreem moderation' or it could ruin a dish. Even though I only used 1/4 Teaspoon of the reccomened 1 full teaspoon in this Red Pepper Soup recipe, it still seemed like too much asfetida & the soup came out bitter, my husband agreed. I am going to try to doctor up the left overs so not to waste it. I may add some half and half to tone down the asfetida & cut the bitterness. Bal, Sorry to have to say it but this ones not a keeper for us.
