50 HOT N' SOUR VEGETABLE SOUP


Most of the days my lunch menu is an elaborate one with rice, chapathi, gravy and a vegetable as hubby comes home for lunch all days. Lately had been craving for some soup and found a perfect day to prepare and enjoy. It had raining since yesterday and being a sunday too hubby had left very early to his office on work and informed earlier that he will not be home for lunch. I did not want to enter kitchen and start with my preparations as was very lazy and tired, so instead made this soup and enjoyed having and for kids just gave their fav Mac n Cheese.


The below mentioned ingredients will serve 4 people.

Green Beans - 10
Carrot - 1
Corn Kernels - 3 tbsp
Cabbage - 3 tbsp
Green onions - 3 stem
Garlic - 3 or 4( grated)
Ginger - 1 inch(grated)
Soya Sauce - 1 tbsp
Corn Starch - 1 tbsp(heaped)
Vinger - 3/4 tsp
Salt as needed
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp( or as needed)
Ajjinamotto - a pinch( optional use only)
Butter - 1 tbsp
Water or vegetable stock - 4 cups


Cut all vegetables into very thin pieces. Keep it aside.


Heat a pan and add butter, wait till it melts and add the bottom part of green onions chopped and saute. Next immediately add grated garlic and ginger. Fry for few seconds and add chopped carrot and green beans. Fry in medium flame for around 3 - 4 minutes. Next add corn and cabbage chopped. Also add a pinch of ajjinamotto. Saute again for another 2 - 3 minutes. Then add half of the chopped green onions. Mix well and add water or vegetable stock. Allow it to boil.


In a bowl mix corn starch with few tbspf of water without any lumps. Pour this to the boiling soup. Add salt and soy sauce and let it come to a boil and reduce flame and cook for another 2 - 3 minutes. Add vinegar and pepper powder and remove. Garnish with remaining chopped green onions.
