Manchow Soup available in most restaurants and street vendors in India. As far as I know, it has been named ‘Manchow’ after the Manchuria province except the Manchurians haven’t a clue about this. Regardless, it tastes good, so why not try it.
As I’m writing this the COVID 19 pandemic rages on, and people are coming up with several ‘cures’ and ‘preventive treatment’. I have no reason to believe this is either. This is just soup. It makes you feel good inside. If you have a cold this might help you get some fluids and some food into you, but that’s about it.
That being said, it’s one of my favourite choices for when I’m down with a cold or fever. To make this soup veg/vegan, just skip the chicken and Maggi chicken bullion cube. It tastes decent without the chicken too.
The recipe uses fried noodles which you can just buy over the counter nowadays, and adding them makes the soup filling. However, if you don’t want noodles, skip them. (Indo) Chinese food means you have to cook on a high flame while stirring regularly.
Now, if you want to eat a nice, tasty soup, and don’t want to order in, let’s Go To The Kitchen.
