Chicken and Corn Soup

This was one of my favourite soup when I was a teenager ( years and years and years back).
Well i must say this was the only soup I ate, and that too was never home made, always had them in the Chinese.
We never had the habbit of having soup at home like lot of you will know, who lives in India.
At least we didn't had them.
So when ever we went to chinese I took this soup.
Ofcourse after getting married and learning to cook. I make lot of different kind of soup whick i love, but when ever I make this soup I feel nostalgic........ actually If I am honest i do feel nostalgic when I make other dishes or for some sweets etc....
For vegetarians they don't have to add the chicken and use vegetable stock.This is my entry for Bindiya's event These are few of my favourite things, thems this month is


Chicken,sweetcorn etc..
