  5. Now add the soy sauce and mix well.
  6. Now add the water or veg stock and bring the soup to a boil on medium flame.
  7. Meanwhile make a paste of corn starch and water. keep aside.
  8. Once the Mixture comes to boil season with salt & add the chilli sauce ( keep a check on the amount of salt as soy sauce & chilly sauce already has a lot of salt).
  9. Add the shredded cabbage now and mix well.
  10. Stir the corn starch paste and add it to the soup. stir again very well.
  11. Allow the soup to thicken on a low to medium flame.
  12. When the soup has thickened, add black pepper or white pepper and vinegar.
  13. Stir again and check the taste and add more vinegar or salt or black pepper if required as per your taste.
  14. Serve the veg hot and sour soup steaming hot & enjoy ting !!!!!!!!!



Note : I like my soup little thick ,that way I can eat lots of veggies 😉 You can add little more veg stock or water to make it thin.

The above ingredients yields 6 small bowls of soup.
