There are lots of different spices used in different parts of India. Each region has its own cuisine, spices and spice blends. My spice rack is full of individual whole and ground spices. If you dont cook Indian food too often, then instead of investing in a bunch of individual spices, you can get small quantities of fresh spice blends, like Garam Masala, Pav bhaji Masala, Panch Phoron and more. One such spice blend which is a staple at our house, is the Kashmiri Garam Masala. It contains Black cumin, Cassia, Coriander, Cardamom, Clove and Tellicherry Black Pepper and is very different from the usual Garam Masala or curry powder. This blend goes very well with greens in stews, stir fries or soups.

This soup has the Kashmiri Garam Masala blend, tomato and some cream from the cashews. The soup gets ready in 15 minutes with just one boil. You can also serve it raw. You can make this soup with other greens too like Collard, Mustard, Chard or a combination of these. Mustard and spinach or Collard and spinach work well together.
