Sweet Corn Chicken Soup

Sweet Corn Chicken Soup

Sweet corn chicken soup is my most favorite Indo Chinese soup dish. When I eat Chinese at a restaurant, this heart warming chicken soup or sweet corn vegetable soup is always a part of the meal. And since this is usually non-spicy, it is an absolute favourite with my daughter too. Sometimes her dinner is just a big bowl of sweet corn chicken soup!
