Hot and Sour Soup

A Chinese meal in Pakistan is incomplete without soup, most popular of them being the “Hot and Sour” soup. While we have heard far too many theories about it’s origin we’re quite unsure of which one to believe; well we don’t care much about it either when it tastes this good. This is our attempt at recreating Hot and Soup using ingredients available at 704.

With Fish crackers on the side, this could be a great addition to your dinner table.
