Veg Hot and Sour Soup

A hot bowl of soup during the winter or rainy season! This thought only made my mind try this wonderful and simple Indo-Chinese soup recipe. Many of us don't like this soup thing but trust me to sip a spoonful of this liquid during the season and you will end up finishing the whole bowl. It is a common soup most of us order as a starter. It is famous for its spiciness and sourness

Soup is not only spices and water but its a combination of water, spices, and vegetables. If you are a meat lover, you even can add meat into this. This will be a source of protein, vitamins, and fiber.

When you make this soup at home, be careful with the consistency. It should be too watery or too thick. Keep an eye on the measurement of corn starch when adding. Veggies should be sliced thinly or diced very small as we don't cook them just saute in oil. So they need not be raw.

I recently published one article on Top 8 Ways to Lose Weight and in that, I covered how soups help prevent weight gain. Having soup just before your meal gets you full and prevents you from consuming more food.
