Manchow Soup

When it comes to soup this is my absolute favourite. Lots of vegetables and the right amount of heat, Manchow soup is a perfect winter treat.

2tbs oil
2tbs garlic, finely chopped
1tbs ginger, finely chopped
1 green chilli, finely chopped
2 spring onions, finely chopped
5 cups stock/ water
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1 medium capsicum, finely chopped
6 french beans, finely chopped
5 mushrooms, finely sliced
1 chicken breast, boiled and shredded
1/2tsp white pepper powder
1tbs soya sauce
2tbs red chilli sauce
salt to taste
1/4tsp sugar
3tbs cornflour
1/2 egg, well beaten
1tbs vinegar
50gms noodles

Boil the noodles. When cold deep fry till golden.
Heat oil in a saucepan. Saute the ginger, garlic, green chilli and spring onion(whites) for 2mins.
Add the stock, vegetables and salt and bring to a boil. Add the seasonings, sauces, chicken and simmer for 4-5mins.
Mix the cornflour in 2-3tbs water and add to soup. Mix till thick.
Add the egg in a thin stream, stirring continuously. Mix well. Remove from heat. Stir in the vinegar.
Garnish with spring onion greens and fried noodles and serve hot.

This recipe is adapted from one of my Sanjeev Kapoor books.
For a vegetarian version, simply omit the chicken and egg.
