In just 10rs the early morning walkers can get variety of healthy Drumstick, Mix Vegetable, Beet, Carrot, Mint and Tulsi Ginger soups after their routine exercise. Every day I prepare 100 cups and looking at the response the quantity might be increased in coming days,” said Komal.

I was part of Save the Children campaign and as a foodie I wish to spread the message of healthy living in the people of Baroda. After deep research I find the soup business as perfect one as the people can get healthy homemade soup after their morning workout and moving towards a healthy life. I invest from my pocket as I don’t want to waste the money and whatever I earn from the business will handover it to my mother,” said Komal.
