Egg Drop Soup

Comforting soup for the winter or even otherwise, when you are under the weather or not ,so easy to put together and so  good! Best ever and easy Egg Drop Soup!

Soup is on the list now and very often theses days,its comforting and easy meal item you can have. Specially when the weather is cold,gloomy and many times when we are under the weather ,its so nice to have a bowl of comforting soup.
I love making a variety of soups /stews and some comforting chili for dinner these days and its so satisfying that I don't feel like munching on anything else after that.

This egg drop soup is my favorite since a very long time,because its simple,flavorful and comforting , all at the same time.
This soup is not fancy,not does it takes a lot of ingredients but so flavorful that no matter water you will ask for seconds.
This is also very HIT among kids as they do not have to munch on a lot of veggies in this soup and yet they will lick the bowls.

Some Tips / Tricks/ Alterations:

  • If you do not find chicken stock then instead using Chicken Bouillion to water is  enough to get the flavor.
  • Adjust the Chili Peppers as per personal tolerance of spice level.
  • I have used broad Thai Noodles.I have cooked the noodles as per the package instructions and then deep fried them.
  • You can alternatively used store bought Fried Noodles.
  • If you do not find Bouillion then skip it and go ahead with soup with remaining ingredients. The flavor wont change much.
