manchow soup recipe with step by step photos – posting yet another popular and delicious indo chinese soup recipe.

veg manchow soup

manchow soup is a spicy and hot soup made from mixed vegetables. apart from veg hot and sour soup, manchow soup and tom yum soup are some of the soups we order from chinese takeaways and in restaurants.

as always for proteins i have added mushrooms. you can add tofu or sprouts. i do not get good quality tofu here and hence they don’t get added to soups or any stir fries.

in the indian chinese restaurants, the manchow soup is served with fried noodles. just to give a restaurant like flavor, i also added fried noodles. i was making both the soup and veg chowmein together and hence kept some noodles for frying. you can completely skip the fried noodles part and serve the soup as it is.

in restaurants, what they serve is a thick soup, which we do not prefer. so i add less corn starch in the soup. thickness can be easily adjusted by adding more or less of corn starch.

serve manchow soup as starter with any indo chinese main course like hakka noodles or veg noodles or veg fried rice or burnt garlic fried rice or singapore fried rice.
