Servings 4 People


  • 1 cup Shredded Chicken Boiled
  • 1/4 cup Spring Onion Finely Chopped
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Finely Chopped
  • 1 tsp. Ginger Finely Chopped
  • 2 tsp. Coriander Leaves Finely Chopped
  • 1 tbsp. Refined Oil
  • Salt To taste
  • 1/4 tsp. Pepper Freshly Cracked
  • 1/2 tsp. White Vinegar
  • 2 cups Water


  1. For Shredded Chicken: Pressure-cook the chicken pieces with little water and salt till it is soft and tender.
  2. Allow it to cool, and then de-bone the pieces. Using a fork, shred the chicken in small threads. Also, reserve the water as we would use it in soup.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped Green Onions, Garlic and Ginger. Allow it to sweat a bit and turn white.
  4. Now, add the shredded chicken and season it with salt and pepper. Be careful with the salt as the juice which is left after cooking the chicken also has some salt in it.
  5. Stir it for a minute or two as the chicken does not need any more cooking.
  6. Now, add the leftover chicken juice and water to make the soup.
  7. Add the Vinegar and Coriander leaves and allow it to boil.
  8. Check for seasoning before serving.
