This delicious soup is made hot with chilli flakes and sour with white wine vinegar. It's a classic Chinese combination and not at all hard to make.
Used different ingredients. I dislike shopping and didn't have fresh mushrooms or bamboo shoots so I used what I had in my fridge and pantry. 200g chicken mince,2 teaspoons minced ginger, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 1 onion sliced, 410g can of Chinese style vegetables (containing water chestnuts, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, baby corn)and 2 teaspoons sesame seeds. I used 4 cups homemade chicken stock and I browned the onion, chicken mince, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds and chillies then added the stock, soy sauce, white wine vinegar, cornflour and beaten egg. - 01 Aug 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. This is a very good rendition of the retaurant soup. To bring it closer to authentic we added more cornflour until the right thickness. Added chilli paste for heat by the quarter teaspoon and individuals added a bit more soy for saltiness. But a good base to start with. Nice! - 29 Sep 2008
