Soups from integral parts of any diet act as a appetizer. They r nutritional as well as stimulate ones hunger. So one need not pounce like a tiger on any body. :P. This Indo Chinese soup we tasted a week back in Village. My hubby really needed such a soup that day as he had caught cold. The soup was tangy and gingery. Uffff! At last his cold was off on its permanent vacations

Every time I keep thinking wat shall I prepare today? This time I remembered about the Man chow Soup… but I never made it so gingery… no one had caught cold :P. I hadn’t prepared it since years… so wasn’t confident if it would taste gud. But God! It did taste well and we had it slurp!!!!!!!!.

8-9 Mushrooms sliced, 1 Carrot finely chopped, 4-5 beans finely chopped, few spring onion greens finely chopped, 1 onion finely chopped, 1 tsp ginger garlic pa…
