Chicken noodle soup
This is very very easy to make and takes amazingly little time.
Leek - 1 to 2 (sliced fine)
You may use 1 onion and Spring onions instead of the leek
Garlic - 2to 3 cloves peeled and crushed
Tomato - 1 large (deseeded and diced)
Turmeric - a pinch
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp or more to taste
Chicken - 150 gms(cubed/ dice)
Chicken stock cubes - 2(or fresh/frozen chicken stock)
Sausage - 2 (or more)(sliced)
Noodles - 1 packet (I used egg hakka noodled)
Salt - to taste
Soy sauce - 1 tsp
Heat a thick bottomed vessel, saute the leek/onion/spring onion...toss in the garlic and add the chicken, saute for 2 minutes. Now add the tomatoes, turmeric, chilli powder and close with a lid to let the tomato cook through. If the stock is liquid or frozen, add it or add a glass of water and the chicken stock cubes..
Let the soup boil. Now add the noodles and and the sliced sausages. finally add the soy sauce, salt to taste and pepper powder.
If you prefer, beat an egg and add it to the boiling soup while stirring constantly. Have it hot and life will seem very beautiful at that moment...:)
