Veg. Manchow Soup Recipe


This is the first time that I am sharing a soup recipe with you all. And what could be better than sharing my absolute favourite soup recipe which is the manchow soup? I learnt this recipe when I was just twelve years old and since then it has become my absolute favourite. If you dislike any of the vegetables, you can skip those. But each of these veggies adds a unique taste to the soup so try keeping them all. Also, you can skip the cornflour if you prefer clear soup.

So without any further blabbering let’s get started with the recipe.
