  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chilli garlic sauce/green chilli sauce (you can adjust it according to taste)
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 3 cups of vegetable broth/Water


Get all the veggies ready for the soup


Take a pan and add oil in it.

When oil is hot enough add chopped ginger, garlic, green chillies and onion in it. Saute it for about a minute or so till onion starts turning translucent in color.Keep the gas on medium heat.

Now add grated carrot, finely chopped cabbage and green beans in it.Stir it nicely. Add salt, be a little light handed while adding salt as the sauces also contain salt in it. Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes.Keep the gas on medium heat.

As the veggies will cook a little bit add mushrooms, green bell pepper and red bell pepper.Mix it nicely and saute it till the veggies are little tender. The veggies should be little tender but their crunchiness should still be there. As the veggies are so finely chopped it will not take much time to cook.

Add black pepper powder and stir it nicely.

When the veggies have cooked nicely add soy sauce,chilli garlic sauce and vinegar. Mix the veggies nicely with the sauces.
