Thai soup

Farzana Hoque ‘s Thai soup recipe-

1)Fry chicken pieces/prawn in a little bit of oil until they cook through and put those aside.
2) put a sauspan into a stove, pour chicken stock on it and bring to boil chicken stock. Now add fried chicken/prawn+ mushroom + corn in the boiling stock.
3) Add a little bit of dark Soya sauce, hot chilli sauce and salt. Leave the stock for a few minutes on the stove.

4) Whisk an egg in a seperate bowl and pour it on to boiling stock. Keep stirring in order to get nice and smoothy texture in soup.

Note-I used portabella mushroom instead of using a can mushroom. You can also use fresh button mushroom and any type of vege of your own choice.
