Sweet Corn Chicken Soup


A quick, easy and healthy soup…Sweet Corn Chicken Soup in Indian Style.
Among Chinese soups one of my kids’ favorite has been this soup. We used to order it every time we go to a restaurant. But once I started making this soup at home, kids love it more than the restaurant version. This is because at restaurants, sometimes the corn is hardly cooked or too much of corn flour is added.
Go ahead and try this one. Hot soups have many health benefits. Soups are easily digestible and best of all easy to feed toddlers and fussy eaters.  
Soups are prepared as an appetizer or cold remedy. Whatever be the reason, soups are considered to be healthy in almost all cultures. We get all the nutrients with half the calories!!! So why wait let’s get started..



INGREDIENTS

Recipe Source – Susy Aunt

Boiled and Shredded Chicken pieces
1 cup
Egg white
of 1 Egg
Oil
1 tbsp
Corn flour
1 tbsp


Chicken Stock
5 Cups
Cream Style Sweet Corn
1 tin
Salt
1 ½ tsp
Pepper Powder
¼ tsp
Spring Onion
1 tbsp
Corn Flour
4 tbsp diluted in 6 tbsp water
Eggs
2


METHOD
Beat the egg white and 1 tbsp corn flour together. Add 1 tbsp oil and mix the cooked chicken pieces in it.
Mash the sweet corn well.
Mix the sweet corn, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Bring it to a boil.
Add the chicken pieces and keep stirring to avoid lumps.
Add the diluted corn flour.
Beat 2 eggs and keep aside.
When the soup mixture boils and the desired consistency is reached its time to pour the eggs.
Hold a fork on one hand. Pour the beaten eggs with your other hand from a height. This has to be done slowly. Keep stirring only to one side. Continue to stir till u finish adding the eggs. This way the egg cooks in strands. Turn off the heat.
Garnish with spring onions and serve hot!

Tips:
To cook chicken for this soup just add lots of water, pepper corns and salt to it. Pressure cook for 4 whistles. 
Strain the chicken stock and keep aside to be used while making the soup.
You can add baby corn too.
I used Ching’s Cream style Sweet Corn.
Adjust the corn flour as per your preference.
