Hot n Sour Soup Recipe

Here is the recipe of Hot n Sour soup you can prepare easily at home. In the past, we have shared a few soup recipes making this complete the set of different flavours.

This Hot n Sour soup has become my favourite after the tomato soup I shared months ago on the blog. Perhaps this is because it has pieces of Paneer in it, but it is loved by my Son as well.

I really missed the soupy noodles after it went off the shelves and is no more available in my city, but this soup will easily replace it until I find a better (and tastier) recipe for my pre-meal crunches.
