Chicken Soup

     Before my marriage during all Sundays, my mom use to prepare this Chicken Soup and serves us without fail. Eventhough its a simple process, i don't feel or i can say, i never tried preparing this soup after my marriage. One day, just thought of preparing it blindly without knowingly the method. Just added all the ingredients whichever flashed in-front of my eyes :P I am sure, the outcome will not be much bad but still with some fear on my face, i served it to my hubby without tasting it. To my surprise, i got a comment that, "The taste was good and he told me to prepare it on every sunday". What-else you need !!!??? :)


ALL YOU NEED:
Chicken 1/4 kg
Chopped Onion 2 Nos.
Chopped Tomato 1 No.
Ginger Garlic Paste 1 spoon
Chilly Powder 1 spoon
Turmeric Powder Pinch
Coriander Leaf 1 Twig
Corn Flour 1 spoon
Cinnamon 1/2 inch
Egg Poriyal 2 spoon
Fennel Seed 1 spoon
Cloves 4 Nos.
Salt To Taste
Oil 1 Spoon

METHOD:

     Take a pressure cooker, Heat a spoon of oil, add chopped onion, cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds and pinch of salt, saute it until raw smell of onion goes off. Now add tomato, ginger garlic paste. Saute it well. Add cleaned chicken, turmeric powder, chilly powder. Give a hard stir, until chicken pieces get coats with the mixture. Add half glass of water and lid on the cooker partially. Once it gets boiled. Lid off and give a stir. Close the cooker completely and keep it for 5 whistles.

    Once the pressure gets released, collect the water in a wide bowl, let the chicken pieces sit aside.Now, add a spoon of corn flour in the extract, mix well without any lumps. Keep it in flame, Once it reach the soup consistency, simmer it. Now add 2 spoons of egg poriyal and take a piece of cooked chicken (which we kept aside) and cut into tiny pieces, add into the soup, adjust with salt. Let it be in simmer for 5 mins. Keep on stirring it. Now put off the flame. Serve hot by garnishing with chopped coriander leaf.
