I have been making new soups every other day and we were enjoying it a lot. Seeing this, hubby got me some country chicken to try soup, he told me to make some nattu kozhi kuzhambu and soup. I made a simple clear soup with fresh ground spices and it was amazing.
I recommend using chicken with bone in, because bone gives the real flavour to this soup, but if you dont want bones in your soup, then add boneless cut chicken. You can use normal chicken in tis too, so try this and let me know what you think.
