Now with a pinch of salt and pepper (if you have added pepper while sauteing no need to add it now)the soup is ready to taste.
I filtered this soup for my daughter but it is not necessary.
Since I used pepper and chilly the soup was really very hot.................
Serve it Hot and enjoy.............:)
