Indo-Chinese Hot and Sour Soup Recipe

19 Sep

The Indian hot and sour soup is one of my husband’s favorite and now it’s my 9-year-old’s as well. I grew up with Indo-Chinese cuisine outside of goan and indian as it was the only other cuisine.  Now a days you can find all sorts of different cuisine in Goa. A Indo-Chinese restaurant called “Gaylin” was the most popular one in Margao.  You can also check out my other Indo-Chinese recipe  Chicken Manchurian.

This recipe is fairly easy and can be done a vegetarian or non-veg version. In the vegetarian version you can add cabbage, green beans, mushroom, carrots, bamboo shoots and tofu and for a non-veg shredded chicken. Else you can leave it as a thick broth without any additions. Last week I  used the same recipe to make chicken wonton soup.

    Hoy Nandini!

    CRIKEY! This Indo-Chinese HOT SOUP looks ‘INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS’. Eu mentioned Hotel Gaylin in Margao, that was the only Chinese restaurant in Margao in those days, it was very close to Me mum’s house in Comba, Margao and hence I have been there quite a few times. Coming back to Your recipe, I must confess that I am a bit ‘CARNIVOROUS’ in My eating habits, therefore I would prefer meat as opposed to veggies in Me soup. I think in the Rodrigues household, We have developed a BIG APPETITE’ for NANDINI’S recipes, if I may put it that way. Your recipe is now ‘ON OUR MIND’. So hopefully We will prepare it at the weekend. Thanks for being kind enough to share this recipe with Us.

    HAPPY WEEK!

    HOY NANDINI!

    CRICKEY! This INDO-CHINESE HOT & SOUR SOUP is just the right soup for the fast approaching BRITISH WINTER. Eu mentioned HOTEL GAYLIN in Margao, Goa. This restaurant was very close to Me mum’s house in Comba, Margao, hence I have been there quite a few times whilst on holiday in Goa. I must confess that I am a bit ‘CARNIVOROUS’ in My eating habits. Therefore I prefer meat in My soup as opposed to veggies. In the Rodrigues household, We have developed a ‘MASSIVE APPETITE’ for NANDINI’S recipes. And so the HOT AND SOUR INDO-CHIENSE SOUP’ is on OUR MINDS. And therefore this recipe has made it’s way to ‘OUR WISH LIST’. ROLL ON WEEKEND, I am looking forward to some delicious Indo-Chinese hot and sour soup. WHAT MORE COULD WE WISH FOR?

    Happy week!

    The soup looks beautiful and delicious. Usually the hot and sour soups that we have are a bit darker in colour. This one is very vibrant. I would surely try out the recipe 🙂

    • Nandini October 4, 2016 at 11:41 am #

      Thank You so much Prajakta. The color variations depends on the type of soy sauce used.
