This soup was in my mind ever since I had it one of the restaurant which we went recently. That was the first time I heard and tasted this yummy goodness. It was spicy at the same time it has lots of flavours in it. The whole soup was finished with a crispy noodle topping which really made it. I wanted to recreate this soup and post it here.So I made this one night and had it with grilled chicken sandwich and baked chicken nuggets. They were delicious.
This was perfect on a cold day and I hope you will love it too.

First make the chicken stock. Take a pressure cooker add chicken along with some turmeric powder and salt. Add lots of water and pressure cook it for 5-6 whistle. Now let the pressure go all by itself. Open the pressure cooker and filter the stock. Now remove the flesh from the chicken and set aside. Throw away the bones and reserve it for your dog.
Now heat oil in a deep pot. Add in ginger, garlic, spring onion and saute for couple of mins.
Add in the shredded veggies and cook for 5-10 mins till the raw smell goes away.
Now add in red chilli paste, soy sauce, vinegar, salt, sugar, pepper and mix well.
Pour the chicken stock in this and mix well. Bring this to a boil.
Now add in the cooked chicken and mix well.
Now mix cornflour with some cold water and pour that into the soup. Now the soup must have thickened.
Now beat eggs and pour it over the soup while mixing constantly. This will make the egg form into threads.
Switch off the flame and ladle the soup into some bowls.
Sprinkle some fried noodles over it with some spring onion.
