Soups are made by combining ingredients like meat, vegetables, bones in water and boiling for a considerable time until the flavour is extracted in form of a broth. Initially in the 19th century when soups were getting popular there were only two broad groups as Clear soups and Thick soups. As years passed by and many countries indulging in their own Soup recipes a variety of soups came into existence, some of the ingredients used in thickening a soup are rice, flour and grains,try my own fusion recipe ; its less Labour more flavour..............
