Chicken Soup | Chicken Soup Recipe

I am not very fond of soups but this chicken soup is an exception as I love to have it with idlis, dosas, bread or even as such as it tastes so good on its own. The climate here is so chill these days and a warm bowl of soup is a bliss. Mittu loves to have this soup as such or with idlis. You can pressure cook for more whistles if its for kids to make the chicken even more soft.

My Notes:
  • If you want it more spicy add a tsp of red chilli powder along with turmeric powder and proceed with remaining steps.
  • The soup goes well with idlis and uttapams too. I love it with hot steaming idlis.
  • You can use the leftover chicken pieces and even the soup for any chicken gravy you are making.
