Hot n’ Sour Chicken Soup


The best thing about the winter is the hot soups I make to keep myself cosy and warm. Though the weather is quite harsh, this season brings the best produce of several seasonal veggies and you would love to use them in various dishes. One such is soups. I love to add them in soups along with some chicken shreds. Whenever there is some leftover chicken, resting in my fridge, I go for this chicken soup adding a few seasonal veggies to it
And you would love slurping the piping hot healthy flavoursome hot and sour chicken soup with seasonal veggies. This soup prevents ailments that bother you a lot in the winter. This soup is flavoured with those ingredients which remind you of Indo-Chinese cuisine. A few of them are soy sauce, vinegar, red chilli sauce, and green chilli sauce. To use them in the chicken soup is a great experience
