Thukpa - Noodle Soup (North-East Indian Style)

         This is a very popular street food from the North Eastern regions of India. I remember having this delicious soup in Mcleodganj in Dharamshala. Every region has their own version. Having just a bowl of this healthy and yummy Thukpa, especially during winters gives one great satisfaction and is also a perfect light meal.

  • 1 cup noodles / 1 small packet 
  • 2 chicken cubes, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup assorted Bell Pepper, cubed
  • 1 onion, cubed
  • 4-5 stalks bok choy, roughly chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. red chili sauce (opt)
  • 1 egg omelette, shredded
  • 1 tbsp. spring onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice (opt)

          Heat oil in a pan and saute the garlic till it changes colour. Add the chicken cubes, 3 1/2 cups water and bring it to a boil.

          Add the noodles and boil for a minute. Add the bell peppers, onion, salt, pepper, chili powder and chili sauce. Let it boil for a minute.

          Now add the bok choy and simmer further for a minute. Switch off the flame and add the lemon juice. Mix well.

          Serve in individual bowls. Garnish with the shredded omelette and spring onion.
