Tips & Tricks
You can use boneless or chest bone chicken for this recipe.
Boil the noodles separately, and then add them to the soup just before serving. This will prevent them from getting too soft and mushy.
Use frozen or fresh corn kernels as per your preference.
If you like your soup to be spicy, you can add more chopped green chillies or chilli sauce.
You can adjust the consistency of the soup by adding more or less cornflour mix as per your liking
The number of servings depends on individual preferences and appetite.
