Servings 4 cups


  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • ½ cup sweet corn cooked
  • ¼ cup french beans finely chopped
  • ¼ cup carrot diced
  • ¼ cup onion finely chopped
  • 2- 3 cloves of garlic peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger paste or thin slivers of ginger
  • 1-2 tbsp cornflour
  • 3 cups water or stock
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • ½ - 1 tsp chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • some spring onion chopped for garnishing


  • Mix cornflour in a ¼ cup of water and keep on the side till required.
  • In a deep pan heat the oil over high heat.
  • When it is hot, add the onion, garlic, ginger, carrot and french beans. Stir fry for a minute or two.
  • Add mushrooms and sweet corn. Stir fry for 30 seconds or so.
  • Add the water or stock. Bring the soup to a gentle boil.
  • Add the cornflour mixture, stirring the soup all the time. Stir till it begins to thicken slightly.
  • Add salt, soy sauce, vinegar and chilli sauce. Mix and serve.
  • Serve with some extra soy sauce and chilli sauce on the side.
  • I didn't add spring onion as I didn't get any at the time of taking the photos.


  • Don't overcook the vegetables. Once the soup begins to boil, add the cornflour, mix till it thickens and take it off the heat.
  • To maintain the crispiness of the vegetables serve the soup immediately.
  • I used my homemade garlic chilli sauce or chutney.  You can buy any chilli sauce from the market.
  • Add any vegetables that you may have at home like zucchini, broccoli, celery, etc.
  • If you use stock and it has salt, then adjust the amount of salt required.
  • Vegetables cut into smaller size means that the cooking time is less. Larger veggies take longer to cook.
