ABOUT Chicken Manchow Soup with Fried Noodles RECIPE

Winter is slowly knocking on our doors and nothing feels better than a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter evening. This soup is one of the most common street food dishes in Mumbai and all across India. Although the restaurants mostly add MSG (Ajinomoto) in it but the recipe I’m sharing is free of it. It is very healthy and you can make it healthier by adding more vegetables and it's a good way of tricking kids into eating a lot of veggies.
