My soupy attempt

I'd like to make it clear that this is not exactly an attempt per say - its just that it sounded nice that way in the title. In fact this is one soup dish that I am very fond of, both cooking and eating.

The dish is spiced chicken soup and the ingredients are very much like confinement soup with lots of ginger and chicken cooked in nice broth. It is what my mom used to make for us when we were young and down with flu. Other times it takes special requests to get this for meals.

Basically I've blended garlic, ginger, potato, carrot and turmeric with coriander, cumin, black pepper, and fennel seed powder. It is not called spiced for no reason.

I love to start any cooking with a nice onion and garlic sautee. You can also it on some dried chillis to give the extra spice. Throw in the blended ingredients and fry for a while. Next you can chuck in the chicken pieces and some chicken balls, if you please. After cooking a while, add hot water of your desired quantity and soup thickness. One it starts to boil put in some vegetables. I like celery, tomatoes and baby corn. For added thickness, you can put some corn starch, and voila!

Spiced soupy chicky goodness! You can eat it with rice, pasta or just in its own.

This reminds me of my mom's soup - spicy and simply yummy. Maybe next time you could share the measurements so I could steal your recipes, hehe.
