Creamy Mushroom Soup | Mushroom Soup | Cream of mushroom soup | Kalan Soup

Cream of Mushroom soup, a simple and super creamy soup that you can have it on any time of the day.To be honest, i'm not a soup person, i rarely make at home and even at restaurant i order once in a while. 

But i still remember the first time, i had this soup. When i was working in chennai, Kumarakom restaurant was opened opposite to my office,so one day we went there for team lunch, that time, i had this soup and i loved it instantly.I like the mild flavor and creamy consistency of the soup,later i went to that restaurant many times with my mom, brother and friends, every time, i never failed to order this.

Last week, during our costco shopping, i picked one mushroom packet(it's really a big one), after i had made the usual dish with mushroom, still left with some, so give it a try to this soup, to my surprise, it came well on first time and it's so delicious.Surely will make this often in coming days.
