The all-time favourite hot and sour soup makes a stunning comeback, in an even healthier form! The beauty of this soup is not just in the method of making it but also in the way it is served.

The flavours of lemon grass and coriander should be extracted well by boiling them; lemon grass is very specific to thai cooking and imparts its refreshing flavour to the dish.

Pouring hot soup over the spring onions, carrots and coriander helps release their flavours besides cooking them slightly. Keep in mind that seasoning cubes already contain salt. Therefore, extra salt should be added finally, and only if required.
