Going beyond blood sugar ? Looking for a soup to control diabetes ???  Here is the diabetic friendly soup  – Knol Khol Avarampoo soup recipe. Kohl rabi soup is an awesome soup packed with full of nutrients and fresh flavors. I used two main ingredients. One is Knol kohl is also called kohl rabi / German cabbage. Appearance is almost look like a cross between cabbage and turnip. I usually make kootu, stir fry and sambar with knol kohl. Knol kohl is rich in vitamin A, B, C and dietary fiber. It has anti-cancer and anti-diabetic properties.

The second one is avarampoo also called Cassia auriculata in English, Tangedu in Telugu and Taravar in Hindi.. This flowers are yellow in colour and is widely grown in remote areas.
