Minced Chicken & Cabbage Soup

Life cannot always be about curries. Once a while a good change should be soups (Mutton Ball Soup and Lotus Root Chicken Soup), Especially for a simplified meal when there's kids around. I usually make soups when my other half is away. I mean away travelling, not away from my life. He however still believes that a good meal must be with curries.

Anyway, when he is not around, I cook what I like and its soups of course. Sometimes extra so that I don't have to cook the next day. If you also going to do that, do not add all the veggies. Add only when the soup is warmed up for another meal. Otherwise, veggies will be really mushy and "dead" that the dish will look unappealing.

This soup made with minced chicken and cabbage is just perfect for the whole family. You still feel some spiciness is a must? Have with sliced chillies in soy sauce.  

100g minced chicken (keep aside 1 tbsp for frying)
2 stalks spring onion (sliced thinly) 
1/2 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp ginger paste 
4 pips garlic (chopped) 
150g/1/4 cabbage (shredded)
1 tsp chicken granules (optional)
3 tbsp oil
1/2 litre water
Salt to taste

Into minced chicken, add 3/4 of the sliced spring onions, cornflour, black pepper powder, light soy sauce ginger and salt.
 Mix all together and keep aside.
When oil is heated, fry garlic and 1 tbsp of the minced chicken for about 2 to 3 mins. 
Add water, chicken granules and season with salt.
Simmer to heat through.
Drop small portions of the prepared minced chicken inside and cook until they float up. 
Off heat, add cabbage, spring onion and stir.
