Military hotels across southindia are popular for traditional meat dishes, some must try are kaal soup, biryani and curries. Kaal soup which is prepared at home is a different recipe, when we compare with military hotels.
Home made kaal soup always has a fried and ground coconut based masala, whereas military hotels do not use oil and there is no ground masala in their recipe. This soup is very healthy specially for kids and old people who cannot digest strong masalas, its a very soothing soup for patients suffering from viral fever, cold or cough.
