This is one soup which is an all time favourite as I am partial to spicy food. A Chinese soup adapted to cater to the Indian palate, it is hot and sour with that tinge of sweetness to it.

  • 1/4 cabbage shredded
  • 1/2 medium carrot grated
  • 1/4 cup bean sprouts

  • A pinch of sugar
  • 3 tbsps corn flour
  • 1tbsp vinegar
  • 1/2tsp pepper powder
  • Spring onion greens finely chopped.
  • Coriander leaves
  • 4 cups water.

Method:
Heat oil. Add the ginger, garlic and onion. Sauté on a high flame for a minute. Add the grated carrot, cabbage and bean sprouts. Toss for a minute. Add the soy sauce, green chilly sauce and toss. Add the Capsicum and red Bell pepper. Toss and add the vegetable puree. Add the sugar, salt, pepper powder and 4 cups of water. Dissolve the corn flour in a little water and add it to the soup. Boil the soup till it thickens. Add the vinegar and coriander leaves. Pour into bowls and drizzle with a little chilly oil and garnish with spring onion greens. Serve immediately.
