Sweet Corn Chicken Soup with Spinach


Having a hot soup in the evening is very comforting  . I regularly make corn soup as this is my family's  all time favorite.  Adding some spinach leaves and chicken makes this soup all the more yummy .





Ingredients : 


1 cup ......................fresh sweet corn kernels
15 to 20 ..................fresh spinach leaves ( don't use the stem )
1.............................onion ( finely chopped )
2 to 3 tbsp............. chicken ( boiled n shredded )
1............................egg
1 tbsp......................oil
1 tbsp.....................corn flour
1/4 cup + 3 cups ..................water
salt
sugar
pepper powder ( optional )



Method :


Boil fresh corn till tender.

Wash the spinach leaves thoroughly and chop them.

Heat oil in a thick bottom vessel and saute onion till translucent.

Now add the corn and chicken and stir for 2 / 3  minutes .

Now add 3 cups water and bring it to boil.

Add salt , sugar as per your liking.

Mix cornflour in 1/4 cup water and pour it in the boiling soup.

Stir continuously for 2 minutes till the soup thickens .

At the time of serving beat the egg vigorously with a fork.

Pour the beaten egg in the boiling soup from a height.

This will form thin threads in the soup .

Also add chopped spinach leaves and cook just for a minute.

While serving sprinkle some pepper powder on top and serve piping hot soup.
