Thukpa/ Northeastern soup / Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal Pradesh is the 2nd in our series of food odyssey. There was so much discussion around this state more importantly because it is the first among the 9 north eastern state that we- mostly  bunch of vegetarian only  blog foodies had to face.

The challenge of not finding enough vegetarian options was surmounted with the lack of the availability of key ingredients for the rest. Thukpa the most popular soup recipe seems to be a find which all of us would relish for a long long time.
