Hot And Sour Chicken Soup.. This is my most favourite soup and it's must on our table when we go to restaurant. I'm a big fan of Chinese food, Soups, as I have mentioned in my earlier post that nowadays I'm not allowed to eat outside and to full fill my Chinese craving I cook at home. The weather is also very cold in Coventry (UK) and that makes it even more better to have hot hot soup any time of the day.. I have added knorr hot and sour vegetable soup to give more taste but you can skip that and use the normal process to make this delicious hot and sour chicken soup.
1/3 cup chicken (very finely chopped)
2 button mushroom (finely chopped)
2tbsp very finely chopped (carrot, cabbage, beans)
1 medium egg
1+1/2tbsp corn flour
1+1/2tbsp dark soya sauce
1/2tsp crushed black pepper
1tsp white vinegar
2tbsp knorr hot and sour vegetable soup (optional)
3cups chicken or vegetable stock
Salt to taste.
In a deep pan, add oil and sauté the chicken with little salt and pepper. then in the same oil sauté the mushroom, carrot, cabbage and beans with little salt and pepper.
In a mean time beat the egg and keep it aside and in a small bowl take little water and mix the corn flour and knorr soup and set it aside.
Once the vegetable are slightly done, add the chicken back in to it and stir. Now add the chicken stock and bring it boil. Then add the soya sauce and corn flour mixture and keep stirring. Add the vineger, black pepper and salt.. Boil it on a medium flame for about 10 to 12 minutes.
Then take a tea strainer and pour the egg slowly from top with help of spoon and boil for another 1 minutes.
Hot and sour chicken soup is ready..
Serve hot hot with extract black pepper, soya sauce and vinegar.
