Sweet Corn Chicken Soup is a light and creamy soup made with creamed sweet corn, chicken stock and egg drop. It is one of the simplest soup recipes that one can make at home.
Chinese chicken and sweet corn soup is one of the most sort after soups for most of us in restaurants. Take me for an example. Until recently this was the only soup that I would take. And there was no compromise on that. But I believe things change for good. Even in the case of a soup. So, my palate has become affable and I'm welcoming it.
When a dear blogger friend Modern Gypsy (as I fondly address her by her blog name) asked whether I have any soup recipes in this space, I stood aghast. I didn't have one. And that's bad. So, since then I had been wanting to make some. I told you that winter is already here and what but a bowl of piping hot soup can drive the cold away. At least temporarily. So, this one's for you, friend. Meanwhile, you should check out her blog. She's one passionate artist and she is also into Tarot reading.
If you can grab your hands on cream style corn, this is quite easy and quick to make. However, you can also use fresh sweet corns available in packets. All you need to do is grind a cup of corn with a teaspoon of water. But do not make it into a smooth paste. Pulse for 5 seconds or so.[tweetthis]Sweet Corn Chicken Soup- a light creamy soup made with creamed sweet corn,chicken stock and egg drop[/tweetthis]

How did you make the stock? Is that available off the shelf? 🙂
I love soups and once made a chicken soup with Rachna's recipe. It was delicious. 🙂
Will try this one too.
Oh I can't wait to try this one. I love Indo Chinese soups.
Also, I am in awe of how frequently you manage to post. I know how much planning and work goes behind a food blog, I had registered mine ages ago (it is still registered under my name) but never got around to posting on it because of lack of time.
But you seem to manage 2 blogs and a full time job so very well. I hope to be able to do the same soon, because I really do love posting about food and Shanaya Tales is kind of in a different place.

cOINCIDENTally, last night around midnight when I saw this article, I was having SWEET CORN CHICKEN SOUP... 🙂
looks yummy :)) x
I am a vegetarian while my husband is non-vegetarian. I have to try and see if he loves corn with chicken in soup.
This looks SO amazing! Soup is my favorite thing to make when it gets cooler, and this one is now at the top of the list!
I am no chef , but I guess this looks doable. Will try it out over the weekend.
