Chicken Manchow Soup

Chicken Manchow Soup

Manchow soup is a soup popular in Indian Chinese cuisine! It is a spicy soup packed full of flavors with loaded veggies and chicken! This soup is served with fried noodles that take it to the next level! Love every bit of it!

This is one of my favorite soup from which i got attracted more towards soup! Summer or winter a bowl full of piping hot soup always make us feel good, isn’t it? My hubby love soups and sometimes we used to skip meals and opt a lunch or dinner just with a soup and starters!

My in-laws introduced this spicy soup when we went out for dinner! This recipe is my sis in law Rahana’s and she is a wonderful cook indeed! Thankyou Rahana for this delicious recipe! Actually this recipe I ‘v shared before 2 or 3 years back and i really can’t stand those pictures I deleted the old post and came up with a new one!
