    Mischka's Note:

    This is Rosemary Stanton's recipe for this style of soup. I have been using this for years and, like her, swear by it. I love mine strong on garlic & chilli so adjust if necessary. Australian measurements used.

      I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. What a wonderful soup! The flavor is quite pleasing and by making this yourself you can control the heat quite nicely. This beats any hot and sour soup that I have had in a restaurant to date. I would not change a single thing about this recipe. Great flavor, easy to make, inexpensive and very satisfying. Made for AZ Swap #22.
