This unusual soup is a must try and one of my all time favorites. The dill pickle taste in this soup is very subtle and never overpowering. The coriander, turmeric and cumin really help tame and complement the dill pickle superbly. It is quick and easy to come together. You can have this ready for your family in about 30 minutes.
