A bowl of steaming Chicken Soup is the cure for almost anything. Easy to make and wholesome to eat, this soup is everybody’s favourite. Everyone has their version of it and my friend Ensiya shared hers with me. The addition of Celery and Lemon Grass adds fragrance to it and is great when you’re down with a cold.

  1. I was waiting for this. Somehow have only made veg soups yet and was itching to make a chicken soup and thus is indeed the one I would like to try. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Sounds delicious. I make a similar version, with coriander, and a bit of carrots and beans. Sometimes I add a teaspoon of barley.

    Its difficult for me to get lemon grass and celery. But, I’ll try this one when those veggies are available.

  3. I am not a soup fan, but during cold or migrains take refuge on soups. Somehow they get comforting only when in pain 😉
    This clear is actually clear, unlike how we see out in resturants. Saving this for future Mayuri
