Patola with Misua Soup is made with thin flour noodles and patola, which is a loofah gourd vegetable. When the vegetables and noodles are combined, they blend into a very tasty soup especially when served on cold and rainy day. This is an old recipe I got from my mom, and it’s excellent served with fried fish. Personally, I really love this dish.
