Cream of Chicken Tomato Soup with Fried Okra

Tasted this soup in a restaurant and really liked it. Decided to give it a try. Took the cream of Chicken Tomato recipe and then added the fried okra to try and replicate what I ate at the restaurant. It came pretty close to what I had set out to achieve. Yummy soup - must try!

  1. Melt 1 tbsp butter/olive oil  in a heavy bottomed pan. Add 1 bay leaf to the hot oil/butter.
  2. Add 2-3 pods of thinly sliced garlic and fry them slightly. Add 2 thinly diced carrots and saute till partially cooked.
  3. Add 10-12 mushrooms finely chopped and saute. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Add  4 tomatoes thinly sliced, 3-4 cups water and let the whole mixture boil for 20-30 mins on a slow flame. Also add chicken pieces(bigger ones) to the mixture.
