Egg Drop Soup

Long long ago I tried and successfully made a tomato egg drop soup. Then I lost the link to the recipe and am looking for it ever since. When I decided on the soup theme for this mega marathon I started looking for that recipe again but I am yet to succeed. But in the bargain I came across this easy and very filling soup which can easily be your entire lunch. It was for me. To top it all, this one is my daughter approved. What more to ask for? So here goes –

Serves 2

Recipe adapted here


Vegetable stock               2 cups

Paneer                                 60-70 gms

  • In a seperate bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining one tap of corn flour.
  • Pour the egg mix very slowly in a single stream into the saucepan while whisking it continuously
