Tips for Success

  • Consistency: Adjust the thickness of the soup by controlling the amount of cornstarch mixture added. Some prefer a thinner soup, while others enjoy a more substantial texture.
  • Egg Technique: For best results with the eggs, ensure the soup is gently simmering but not boiling vigorously when you add them. This helps in creating delicate egg ribbons.
  • Customization: Feel free to add other ingredients such as diced chicken, tofu, or even shrimp to make the soup heartier and more filling.
