Corn Eggs Indo-Chinese Soup

Sweet Corn Egg Drop Soup

Sweet corn and beaten eggs together in a soup, light and warm soup for winter…

When it’s freezing cold outside, you gotta sip a warm soup. One of my favorite soups is sweet corn chicken soup, this is a popular soup in Indo-Chinese cuisine.

I’ve made this soup with chicken and shrimp as well. This time, I made the soup with just sweet corn and eggs. Light and delicious soup that will comfort you on a freezing cold day or any day.
