Hot & Sour is the only soup which I order all time...We will go to a near by restaurant often and I will order this soup along with crispy fish fingers..Hmmm...This taste so awesome..I love adding egg and chicken in this soup..I love the taste of it..But if you wish you could make it entirely vegetarian..Skip the chicken and egg part in this recipe and add lots of vegetables...
I made this a while before and served it with some crispy chicken croquettes(remember the recipe)..This was our dinner that day..It rained heavily that day and soup with fried chicken croquettes made us so comforting and cozy..So with no more delay..I am giving you the step by step recipe with pictures..
