Chicken Soup

This soup is made in more of a desi style because if the poor patient is already suffering  not having the yummy dishes so at least some yummy soup : )
It is said to be a Power Bomb in many stages, like if you have caught a cold, Asthma due to cold weather, after delivery and many more.

I made it for my HD to cure his cold and cough and it helps a lot always.
You don’t need to make it as a hot soup but it should be delicious so the tasteless tongue can enjoy some yummy stuff : )
You need:
½ chicken (makes around 500 g)
(Make small pieces of the meat)
1 medium onion
1 tbs soft butter
½ tsp cloves
½ tsp black pepper corn
½ tsp ginger/garlic paste
 ¼ tsp cumin powder
¼ tsp coriander powder
50 ml of vegetable stock
2 ½ glasses of water (you can add more if you feel less)
½ tsp salt and add more to taste as soup ready

-heat the butter slightly in a pot and add the cloves, as soon as they release the aroma add the black pepper corns and fry a but
-now fry the sliced onion carefully and don’t let it burn to dark brown, or else the color of the soup will get too darkish
-as the onion takes a bit golden color, add the chicken and let the water release then start stirring
-sprinkle the gg paste and stir till the meat turn into a nice gold color and the smell of raw meat is finished
-add the cumin, coriander and salt and the Vegetable stock and stir all well
-the meat will give a very nice aroma and will seem like curry meet, now add the water
-let this cook on a medium heat, the slower it simmers the more the bones give a nice juice
-it takes around 1 ½ -2 hours to make a really good soup, a bit thin yet super in taste
-you can sprinkle just a dash of garam masla to enlighten the taste
-if you like you can add the soup noodles in it at the last point and cook another 10 minutes
-I add vegetables in it too, like fine sliced carrots and peas and add some cooked rice in it
-this soup is really filling and is a total healthy meal for any one
-It is best to finish it the same day and make fresh again.
 Stay well and Healthy!



  1. Asalamoalikum,

  2. Wa'alaikum Assalaam dear Anonymous;

    Thank you for liking :) Do you mean to sprinkle the "Garam Masala"?
    It's a blend of whole spices in powder form, like cloves, black pepper corn, cumin seeds, black cumin seeds, corriander black cardomom and green cardomom and cinnamon.
    We usually get this ready made powder at any Pakistani or Indian shop or you can also grind this all at home too.
    This is just to give the soup a hearty taste and Aroma, you can exclude it if not available.
    I hope i understood the right Thing :) Do ask if any confusion
    Good luck with your New Born Baby!!
