Bok Choy Soup

Dear all, I hope you all had a fantastic Dassera! Mine was good too; relaxing pretty much through out the weekend. I still need to write recipe for 'murukulu' which I made. But for now, some healthy soup. 

I love Chinese food. Contrary to the popular belief that Indian food is the most difficult to make, I find that Chinese is more difficult than Indian. Perhaps its because I am not really familiar with Chinese recipes. One of my favorite and easy-to-make Chinese appetizers is Bok Choy Soup. Below measurements serves two.For someone like me who is forever struggling for time, this soup is a blessing!

Ingredients:
Bok Choy: 10 leaves, chopped
Vegetable stock: 2 and half cups
Soy sauce: 1 tsp
Butter: 1 small cube (Optional)

Method:
Boil the stock for 5 minutes. Add the chopped Bok Choy, simmer and boil for another 10 minutes. By this time Bok Choy would have turned dark green. Add soy sauce and boil for another minute. Switch off and serve piping hot with a small butter cube.

Note:
You can add almost anything to this soup to make it more interesting. Example: cooked chicken, cooked shrimp, cooked veggies...literally anything! Add anything after 5 minutes of boiling bok choy. You might have to reduce the quantity of bok choy if you are adding other veggies.

I am sending the above recipe to Chaitralis soup event. Here is the link for the rules and the event itself.

  7. Soup is always very comfortable n healthy option of food dear,,My hubby likes bokchoy in soups he love chinese foods.

    Madhu, reg ur query on Down Syndrome. It's really good gathering info before planning for a baby. It's actually asked to take blood test during 12th week of ur pregnancy dear, but this is not mandatory for all womens. Becoz, from the scan itself ur gynae use to measure the baby's growth everything from that if he feels some doubt he will ask to take this test or else it upto ur wish u can take this or no need to take it. Just to know how the baby is growing to the pregnancy date.Otherwise no need to worry.

    All the Best for ur progress dear,,
