Egg Drop Soup

On a frigid day, who doesn’t like to have a warm and a comforting soup made with a perfect combination of mushrooms, eggs, ginger and most importantly a little bit of love…:)

This is my version of the soup. A simple, delicious and a very nutritious soup, which will be loved by all. In this soup I have used egg whites instead of whole eggs. The beaten eggs when dropped in the soup, just looks like  silky threads...

  1. Egg whites- 3 nos
  2. Ginger(crushed)- 1tbsp
  3. Mushrooms- ½ cup
  4. Chicken Stock- 2 cups
  5. Soy sauce- 2tbsp
  6. Salt and Pepper- as required
  7. Celery/ Basil- for garnish

  1. Heat chicken stock in a bowl until simmering. Add mushrooms at this stage and let it cook for 4- 5 minutes.
  2. Now when the mushroom becomes soft add the crushed ginger, salt, pepper and soy sauce. Mix well.
  3. Keep the flame in lowest maximum and slowly pour the egg whites while stirring the chicken stock in one direction. The eggs will get cooked immediately forming lovely strands. Switch off the flame and garnish with celery and serve.

Bournvita chocolate Brownies- Celebrating Dad- in- law’s birthday….

The best way to start a new year is with a perfectly baked chocolate brownies, which is little crisp from outside and moist from inside. Actually I wanted to post a lot during Christmas and new year, but due to unexpected travelling, I couldn't plan anything for my blog.

Yesterday was my daddy’s (father- in- law's) birthday and so this is the perfect post on this occasion. Nothing much has changed after marriage, I was my dad’s pet and now I am my dad- in - law's pet. He’s so loving, caring, friendly, supportive and more over I can share anything with him. He loves to try new cuisine and whenever he visits us, I try new recipes. Whatever I make, even though it didn't come out quite well, he will be like “ yummy, perfect, I want more”... :)

He loves my cakes and bakes a lot and so I thought the brownie will be an ideal dish for this occasion. I have made chocolate brownies before, but here I have added bournvita for the extra taste and colour. I am sad that he couldn't taste it, but when he visits us I am sure going to make this delicious chocolate brownies. He will love it. Just try this easy, simple brownies and you won't stop with one….
