Veg Manchow Soup Recipe – Today let me share with you one of the soup recipe that is always on my menu when we go out for dinner. Well not always but mostly when I am in a mood of having Indo-Chinese food. Veg manchow soup is full of flavors and has lots of vegetables making it perfect broth for dinner. Soups are a great way to start a full meal. Half a bowl of soup helps starting the digestion process and help is reducing over eating.
Among all different soups that are available in Indian restaurant, I think tomato soup is the soup of choice for Indians and probably it is the most ordered soup on any restaurant’s menu. However there are few that are not left far behind. Veg manchow soup, sweet corn soup, hot and sour soup, clear soup etc. are few that tops the list.
I have seen kids are fond of veg manchow soup quite a lot. My 5 year old nephews make sure they get this Chinese soup whenever we go out for dinner. Although sometime it’s spicy they still complete the full bowl. We prefer to avoid outside food and hence always try to make this veg manchow soup at home. When you are making this soup for kids you can always improvise and make it little less spicy. Also we can change the soup consistency and make it healthy by reducing corn flour.
