Make chicken stock by adding water, chicken bones, carrots,
celery, green beans, garlic, onion, peppercorns, and bay leaves. Strain once or
twice to get a more clear chicken stock.
In a pan, add chicken stock and sweetcorn. Bring it to a boil. Add cooked
chicken and salt. Mix cornflour with 1/2 cup of water and add to the soup. Cook
for 3 minutes in low flame. Now the soup is thickened. Pour beaten eggs through
a strainer on top of the boiling soup. Continuously stir so that the eggs
passed through the strainer do not go lumpy.Add light soya sauce. Mix well. Now
add vinegar and sugar. Stir well. Add pepper powder. Taste check for salt. Add
salt only if required as we are adding light soya sauce, which is more saltier
than the dark soya sauce.
Garnish with spring onion leaves or celery leaves if required.
