Turmeric Soup

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by AmandaInOz

A basic Nepalese soup. Good for treating colds. Recipe from The Spice House. Edited to add: This is meant to be a medicinal soup. You wouldn't serve your family a cup of TheraFlu or Lemsip for dinner would you? ;)

3 Stars, requesting clarification of the heat setting and the length of time for step 1. This tasted very mild to me, as something easy to digest that might reduce inflammation. I would have preferred a very thick chicken stock as a substitute for the water. I wanted more garlic (I usually double garlic), but I haven't decided if I would increase the ginger. Step 3 indicated that the egg should be broken into the pan directly, and sauteed, which then resembled egg drop soup. I needed to add salt to wake up the taste. If DH or develop a cold or the flu, I will be sure to try this. Different things appeal when you are sick. Made for Tempted by Turmeric.
