Last week i had a last min notice to inform that a friend is coming by for dinner. Got a bit panic as i did not have much ingredients and definitely not enough time to boil the conventional type of Chinese soup.

Suddenly i remembered my friend once shared with me on this recipe which i have yet to try out....... The result?? Good!

Surprisingly, the soup came out to be some sort of cream soup and it taste really nice..... Try it out and let me know how you find it or how you mollify it better!

Happy Cooking!

1) Large potato (1 potato for 1 serving) - Skin the potatoes & cut into medium-size cube

2) Celery (1/4 cup of chopped celery per serving) - Cut Celery into medium-size cube (not too fine)

3) Onion (1 large onion per serving) - Cut onion into 4 pieces (like wages)
4)Fresh Milk/Full Cream Milk or cream
5) Chicken cube
6) Coriander/cilantro or your own fav type of herbs.
7) Salt & papper to taste

1) Boil potatoes, celery and onions in water with the water level slightly covering all the vegetables.
2) Bring to boil and lower heat, cover and simmer for 25mins, or until all of the vegetables are very tender.
3) Using a potato masher, coarsely crush the potatoes, but dont mash them, you want chunks left (I used fork instead)
4) Add enough milk or cream to thin to desired thickness and add salt & pepper to taste.
5) Finally, add some coriander (fresh or dried also can).

Isn't this almost the same as the ABC soup that my mom use to make?
