An all-time favourite Indo-Chinese soup, which is sure to fire up your digestive juices and boost your spirits with its appetizing aroma and tongue-tickling flavour!

The strong accents of ginger and garlic make it an ideal soup to serve on a damp monsoon day. While the soy sauce gives it an awesome Umami flavour, the topping of fried noodles gives it an exciting crunch and makes it a bit filling too.

The Manchow Soup is made with common ingredients, which will be available with anyone who likes Chinese food. It is also easy and relatively quick to make. So you can try it out immediately and see for yourself if it lives up to our praise!

You can also try other recipes like the Sweet Corn and Vegetable Soup or Vegetable and Noodle Soup.
