My husband will prefer to cook this soup on his own with no help from me. This is an excellent comfort food when someone in the family has a cold.
SE Asia makes various kinds of noodle soups. On a cold monsoon day, this healthy soup warms you up beautifully. You may add more or less of the ingredients but don't skimp on the tender onions or you'll miss the fragrance and flavour. You may use macaroni in place of egg noodles and to make it spicy, add lots of chopped red or green mirchi!
You'll love this flavourful, mild soup on a misty monsoon evening or whenever you've had a long day and need something comforting. Feel free to add crushed chillies to spice it up.
A fragrant, delicious soup with fantastic fresh flavours from South East Asia.
Great for a cold day or when you're recovering from illness, this is a quick and easy recipe for a delicious chicken soup.
The authentic version of this soup has galangal, lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves. I couldn't find them so I've used substitutes. It turned out delicious!
This classic Chinese hot and sour soup is ready in 30 mins. Who says good things need to be complicated?!
In SE Asia, there are different kinds of 'noodle soups'. This one is a great comfort food on a cold day, but also light and healthy. Quantities are arbitrary - adjust to own taste. Very important to add the tender onions as they give the fragrance and flavour. Instead of egg noodles, sometimes I use macaroni. Add chopped hot chillies or dried chilli flakes to make the soup spicy.
This hearty soup tastes really special, yet despite its creamy texture it doesn't contain any cream. Made with cooked chicken and fresh sweetcorn and potatoes, with a garnish of bacon, it's substantial enough for a light lunch, served with crusty bread and followed by salad or fruit.
Simple wonderful on a cold monsoon evening! Chicken soup is often credited with being a panacea for all kinds of ills, and this version – with its warming spices and vibrant colour – should perk up anyone. Serve with ghee wala parathas.
