Day 2: Course 2: ‘Bamboo’ Hot and Sour Soup
Today was the second part of The Seven Course Meal Project. I was a little tensed about today’s course. I thought making a soup would require a lot of work and the recipe read arduous. I was wrong! It’s fairly simple and even an amateur chef like me could come up with such a delightful soup! 🙂
I was really keen on including mushrooms in the recipe but the store had run out of them by the time I reached. So it was a bit of a dampener but the bamboo shoots lifted my spirits considerably!
The soup smelled divine and the taste came astonishingly close to the soup you get at Chinese restaurants here.
Recipe from Sanjeev Kapoor’s website.
Watch out for the third course i.e. salads tomorrow 😉
