Winter Recipe: Hot & Sour Soup.

Brrr...Brrr! What better than a warm bowl of soup in winters. Nothing beats chicken soup for me but for a change I like to enjoy minestrone, lentil, veggies and seafood in my soup.

Hot and sour soup is one of my favourite soups and I prefer it with shrimps/prawns. But you can add chicken too if you like. Here's my easy peasy recipe and as always you can add or subtract ingredients according to your own taste & preference.

1/2 cup chicken (boiled and shredded-if you like)
1 cup shrimps/prawns (stir fried and fully cooked)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chinese salt

1/2 cup cabbage (thinly chopped)
2 carrots (thinly chopped)
1 spring onion (thinle sliced)
1 tsp black pepper
1 eggwhite
3-4 tbsp cornflour
1 knorr chicken cube
