Misua Soup

If you are in a hurry and craving for a good tasting  filipino soup, try this easy to prepare recipe. Here in Qatar we never run out of vegettables from India  and patola is one of them.

Patola /loofah  is commonly used by Filipinos when making misua soup together with  some meat or shrimp. I usually like frozen or fresh shrimp for my misua soup, depends on whatever is available.
