HOT AND SOUR SOUP
Hot and sour soup is one my most favourite soup,  but i never attempted to do it at home , as i feel certain dishes will taste super yum in restaurants. During our trip to India in December, i bought a Knorr Hot and sour veg soup  packet and made it after coming to Singapore. We all enjoyed it but hubby was insisting me to try it at home. So i searched for the recipe in google and finally made my own of making Hot and Sour vegetable soup.
Thank you Nags for introducing me to the Chinese celery , else i would have ended up buying the bigger one with thick stems.

INGREDIENTS:

CARROT 1/4 PORTION
CABBAGE(FINELY CHOPPED) 4-5 TBLSP
SPRING ONIONS FEW
CELERY FEW
GREEN CHILLI 2
SUGAR 1/2 TSP
SALT AS NEEDED
LEMON JUICE 1 TSP
GARLIC 4-5 CLOVES
CAPSICUM 3-4 TBLSP
SOYA SAUCE 1 TBLSP
OIL 1 TSP
CORN FLOUR 1 TBLSP
PEPPER POWDER TO TASTE

METHOD:

  • Chop the celery, spring onion, carrots, capsicum, cabbage finely. Separately chop the spring onion  bulb and leaves .
  • In a deep wide pan, add oil (preferably olive oil) and add the slit green chilli.  When it changes the color, take it out and discard the chilli. We need just the flavor of the chilli to get into the oil.

  • Add the finely chopped garlic and sugar and saute for a while.
  • Now add the veggies which we chopped finely, except the spring onion leaves.
step 3 hot & sour Step 4 hot & sour
  • Saute for a minute and add 3 cups of water. You can add VEGETABLE STOCK too instead of water. Click on the link to see the recipe of stock.
  •  Add salt and bring it to a nice boil.
  • After 5 minutes mix corn flour in 2 tblsp of water without any lumps and add it to the pan.
  • Mix well. The soup will reach the right consistency in 2 minutes. Add soya sauce and put off the flame.
Hot & sour step 5 Hot & sour step 6
  • Add pepper powder and lemon juice.
  • Garnish with spring onion leaves and chopped carrots.

NOTE:

  1. Always add the veggies finely chopped.
  2. U can add extra 1 tblsp of soya sauce if you want the darker color. But don’t add too much it will spoil the taste.

I checked many other recipes for this soup and mostly they recommend adding vegetable stock instead of simple water. Would that be better?

Reply
admin May 7, 2013 - 2:31 am

It will be surely better if you add stock. Actually i wanted to mention this in the recipe for a long time, but some how forgot. Thanks for the query and i updated now. I have the vegetable stock recipe too here
