A great favourite in my house. Very quick and very easy. Even if I do not have ready chicken stock, I use 1 cube of chicken taste maker for every 2 cups of water and altogether omit chicken. Tastes just as good!

I doubled this recipe last night and made this for dinner. I omitted the Tabasco sauce altogether as we don't use it. I used Maggi vegetable stock with onions as a substitute for the chicken stock. The major problem with doubling the recipe came when blindly I added the juice of 4 lemons instead of 2 to the soup. I had not tasted the soup before serving. It was too strong in lemon and my family was MAD at me:( I had to add almost 2 cups of water and boil again to make it ok. I'm sorry for giving such a review, but mom gave me one bad time that night.
