Chicken Manchow Soup

Chicken Manchow Soup has always been our all time favorite. This piping hot chinese soup served with fried noodles tastes delicious. 

 

Recipe :

Ingredients :

  • 3-4 strips of boneless chicken, boiled and shredded
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 inch ginger, minced
  • 4-5 small bulbs of spring onion, finely chopped
  • spring onion greens, chopped (for garnish)
  • 1/2 small carrot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 capsicum, chopped
  • 1/4 piece of small cabbage , shredded
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp red chilli sauce
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • salt as per taste
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 cups of chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp corn flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Method :

  1. In a wok, heat olive oil.
  2. Add garlic, ginger, green chili.
  3. Once the garlic turns a little brown, add the onion. Saute for a minute.
  4. Add the cabbage, carrot and capsicum. Mix and saute.
  5. Add pepper powder, soya sauce, chilli sauce, vinegar and mix.
  6. Then add the shredded chicken pieces and mix.
  7. In a small bowl, mix cornflour in 1/2 cup chicken stock (out of the 4 cups). Stir well to avoid lump formation and keep aside.
  8. Add the remaining chicken stock to the saucepan.
  9. Add salt as per taste.
  10. Once the soup comes to boil, add around 4 tbsp of cornflour mixture. Allow the soup to thicken. If you need thicker consistency, you can add a little more cornflour mixture. ( I added around 6 tbsp of cornflour mixture).
  11. Keep stirring so that the cornflour doesn’t settle down. Check the seasoning.
  12. Add the beaten egg to the soup, while stirring the soup continuously.
  13. Garnish the soup with spring onion greens.
  14. Enjoy the soup piping hot with fried boiled noodles.
