Tomato & Coriander Flavored Veg Clear Soup - Asian Style





Ingredients:

Tomato - 1 medium
Onion - 1/2
Chopped mushrooms - 1/2 cup 
Mixed vegetables - 1 cup (Peas, Carrots, Beans, Broccoli, Cauliflower)
Finely chopped garlic - 1 tbsp
Chopped spring onion - 1 tbsp
Ginger Julienne - 3 to 4
Finely chopped fresh coriander/cilantro leaves with stalk - 1/2 cup
Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Chicken stock - 2 cubes (vegetarians please use Aji - No - Moto 1tsp)
Pepper & Salt - To taste
Sesame Oil - 2tbs
Water - 3 cups (1 cup = 160ml)

Method:

Take a pan, add the sesame oil. Once its hot, add the onion and garlic and fry. Then add the mushrooms and fresh vegetables and fry. Add a little salt. Dont over cook the vegetables as they will cook even more in the water and the vegetables need to have a slight crunch when you bite them.

Then add the tomato and saute for a minute and add the three cups of water. Once the water starts to boil add the chicken stock cubes/ aji-no-moto, pepper, salt and red chilly powder. Stir and finally add the spring onions and freshly chopped coriander leaves and add the ginger julienne. Boil for a few seconds till coriander leaves and ginger gets infused in the aroma and flavor. Put in a bowl and serve hot. Very good for people on a diet.
