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.
