However, doctors warn that it is a no-no in rainy weather when humidity levels are high, and stomach problems may occur. As a result, it is critical to recognise and prioritise your health and well-being throughout the epidemic, without sacrificing flavour. If you're seeking for scrumptious dishes to make during the rainy season, consider these four soups.
