When served with a few condiments like slims chip, papri, or boiled eggs, the Chinese soup gets a desi kick. Store-bought soups are loaded with salt and Chinese salt.
Homemade versions are surely healthy and can be made easier with little effort. For best results use cream-style sweet corn tin or whole-kernel sweetcorn tin to make this soup.
