Hot and sour soup

Hot and sour soup recipe, Veg hot and sour soup, a popular Indo Chinese soup recipe – Restaurant style Hot and sour veg soup recipe with full video and detailed step by step instructions.

Soups are always liked by everyone at our home. The most common one I make is palak soup, pumpkin and carrot soup, and broccoli soup. I have tasted hot and sour veg soup in restaurants. I wanted to try this at home. We are experiencing winters here in Hongkong. A Hot bowl of soup is perfect for this lovely weather.

The combination of the veggies and the addition of soya sauce, pepper, vinegar elevates the taste of the soup. A perfect one for a cold winter day.

This is a wholesome soup loaded with veggies and greens. Always ensure to serve the soup hot. This is a perfect for party starters and pairs well with manchurian.

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
