EGG DROP SOUP

Ingredients
**********

  1. Chicken Broth – 4 cups (I use homemade broth, but can use the store bought low sodium one)
  2. Ground ginger – ⅛ tsp
  3. Ground white pepper – to taste
  4. Chopped Fresh green chives – 1 tbsp
  5. Cooked Carrots – 1 cup
  6. Cooked Green peas – 1 cup
  7. Cornstarch – 2 tbsp
  8. Eggs – 2
  9. Egg yolk – 1
  10. Egg white – 1
  11. Salt – as required
  12. Green onions (Scallions) – to garnish
    ingredients

Method:
*******

  1. Take 3 cups of Chicken broth in a large saucepan.
  2. Add ingredients 2 through 6 and bring to boil.
  3. Make a mixture with cornstarch and 1 cup of chicken broth and set it aside.
  4. Take the eggs and egg yolk & whisk it well.
  5. To the boiling broth gently add the whisked eggs and yolk (on to the fork to give the restaurant style texture).
  6. Once the eggs are dropped, add the egg white (still use the fork to get the ribbon format).
  7. Add the cornstarch and broth mixture to this. Stir is lazily.
  8. Boil it for 1-2 minutes.
  9. Garnish with scallions

Notes :

  1. In order to get the yellow color for the soup, while making the chicken broth I had added some turmeric.
  2. Use the fork as a medium to create the ribbon format for the egg.
  3. Soy sauce can be used for taste.
  4. As I make this soup for my 3 year old, I add the carrots in different shapes (star, mickey, heart) which she enjoys.

Strawberry Ice Cream (Eggless)

I am still to meet a person who doesn’t like ice-cream in my friend’s circle. We had a get together at home last September. Day before the get together I had to come up with a full vegan (no egg) dessert as few of our friends joining were fully vegan on that particular day. I had never tried making any ice creams before and as I had plenty sweet strawberries at home I thought why not I try this. Thanks to my dearest friends Diana and Nitha who always support all my ideas, I decided to try that. My mom was with me here in states and she is my biggest motivator. No matter what terrible result I do she always finds something positive even in that. But this time lady luck (my mom with her milk powder idea) helped me create this wonderful recipe. I would say this is a very easy recipe and I have tried it few times after the first time and I have always got consistent result. So here you go…the eggless easy strawberry ice cream (my munchkin’s fav).

Ingredients

  1. Fresh Strawberry – 15nos (Choose juicy and sweet ones)
  2. Powdered Sugar – 2 tsp (Depending on the sweetness of strawberries)
  3. Heavy Whipped Cream – 16 oz (473 ml)
  4. Sweet condensed milk – 13 oz (375g)
  5. Milk Powder – ¼ cup
  6. Pink Color (Optional) – Strawberry pulp would give the color, so I haven’t used it.

Method:
*******

  1. Wash, clean the strawberries.

  4. Add heavy whipped cream in a mixing bowl (refrigerate at least for an hour before use) and whisk it for 3 minutes (If in a standing mixer or if whisking by hand for about 5 minutes). End result should be the soft and fluffy look.
