You will find this veg manchow soup in every Indian-Chinese restaurant menu. There is another similar soup recipe you will find in menu too which I have already shared. It is hot and sour soup. Hubby prefers these two soups over any other smooth, creamy soups. Because he is fan of chunky textured and spicy soups.

The consistency of the soup is thin compared to hot and sour soup. This is how I have eaten in many restaurants. But in case, if you like thick soup then increase the cornstarch amount little bit.

The best thing about manchow soup is that it is topped with fried noodles. I love that crunchy noodles with hot, spicy, sour soup.

For making this soup I have used homemade vegetable broth. I highly recommend using it over the water. This gives good flavors to the soup. Since this is thin soup, so all the flavors are coming from vegetable stock and sauces we are adding. Vegetables also add little flavor but it is for texture and taste.
