Hot N Sour Mushroom Soup

Soups r always healthy n also very easy to make.. I prepared this hot n sour soup with mushroom, as i was craving for chinese style of soups..also my button mushrooms were laying in my fridge since two days, so thought of preparing a creamy soup but changed them as hot n sour soup coz its too rainy here today..its really wonderful to have this sort of soup while its rainy..


1cup Button mushroom pieces
1no Onion chopped
1no Vegetable stock cube
2tsp Soya sauce
1tsp Ginger minced
1tsp Garlic minced
1tsp Green chilli sauce
1/2tsp White vinegar
2tsp Tomato ketchup
1/4tsp White pepper powder
2cups Water
2tsp Corn flour
1tsp Green onions
Salt
Oil

Heat oil in a large vessel, add the onion, garlic, ginger n mushroom pieces n stir them for while..add the vegetable stock also..add chilli sauce, tomato ketchup, soya sauce to the veggies n stir them well, now add 2 cups of water n bring them to boil..put the flame in simmer n close the vessel with a lid..

Check for the vegetables, if they r cooked, add the white vinegar n white pepper powder..mix enough water to the corn flour n make them as thin batter..add this batter to the mushroom water n stir it , they will turn thick..put off the stove n garnish with green onions..
