- Boil 5 cups of water in a pan. Add the seasoning cube, garlic, ginger, lemon grass and coriander (tied together), cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
- When the aroma stasrts getting released, discard the garlic, ginger, lemon grass and coriander bunch.
- Add the chillies, mushrooms, baby corn and salt and simmer for another 15 minutes in the covered pan.
- Add the lemon juice just before serving.
- Garnish the soups bowl with spring onions, coriander and carrot, pour the hot soup over it and serve at once.

- Pouring hot soup over the spring onions, carrots and coriander helps release their flavours besides cooking them slightly.
