Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup

Hi handsome and pretty, or hi pretty and handsome!
Today, you know what? I'm gonna literally force the Indians over this Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup (Chick Kut Teh, Chap Chai & Chinese Chicken Black Vinegar). Oh, come of it everyone. It can't be daily Indian food (Sambar/Indian Dhal Curry)? My tongue, trust me, is already dead and I had a valid reason for a Chinese soup too. When my other half-half is away, Nava K can't think of anything else to cook except a chicken dish and soup. Always and forever a pleasure for me. I can in fact survive on soups, all the time (Bee Hoon Soup), I might as well include noodle dishes (Curry Chicken Noodles, Penang Assam Laksa, Lamb Pho & Penang Hokkien Mee) as well. Unlike our Indian soups (Indian Crab Soup & Mutton Soup), Chinese soups by far are less complicated. But trust me, not any interior in tastes. Lovely, smooth and ginger and garlic I reckon are a must. Can be put together easily, this Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup (Indian Mutton Meatball Soup) evidently is a sheer delight. Add some cabbage and its a complete one dish wholesome meal. Either on its own or rice of course is must for a Malaysian like me.

100g mince chicken (keep aside 1 tbsp for frying)
2 stalks spring onion (slice 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 onion, cornflour, black pepper powder, light soy sauce, ginger and salt.
Mix all together and keep aside.
Heat oil and when 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, spoon the prepared minced chicken, in equal portion inside and cook until they float.  
Off the heat, and combine in cabbage and spring onion.
