One of my strongest food memories is that of winter months— a giant pot of soup gently simmering on the cooktop. My grandma would handpick the veggies from the local market and would throw in the spices and lentils (and some magic) to create a broth that conducted the perfect symphony in my mouth.
Till today, a warm bowl of soup is my source of comfort on a winter night.
