Chicken Clear Soup (Indian style)

on December 13, 2014

Its winter time !! And what could be more soothing than a hot bowl of chicken soup ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well if the chicken soup has a tinge of indian flavours, then tho “Wah !! Kya baat hai” Hain na ๐Ÿ˜‰ As I am a pakka desi, I get more attracted towards Indian foods and flavors. I adapted this recipe from “Sharmis passions” and made some slight modifications to suit my taste, This one’s a simple and quick clear soup recipe which is sooo very comforting. It was a blessing for me as I had a sore throat, And I had it with loads of pepper ๐Ÿ™‚ and some soup sticks.


  • Chicken – 300 gms (Boneless, cut into small bite sized pieces)
  • Turmeric powder – a generous pinch
  • Water – 2 cups
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper powder as required

To be ground:

  • Onion – 1 small
  • Coriander leaves – 1/4 bunch
  • Mint leaves – About 5
  • Garlic cloves : 3
  • Cumin seeds (Jeera) – 1 tsp
  • Green Chillis – 2
  • Peppercorns – 1/2 tsp

To temper:

  • Oil – 1.5 tsp
  • Cardamom(Elachi) –ย 2
  • Cumin seeds (Jeera)- 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Onion – 1 small sized (chopped)


  • Grind the onions, coriander leaves, mint leaves, peppercorns, jeera, garlic cloves, green chillies to a fine paste.
  • Marinate the chicken with this ground paste and set aside for about 30 min.
  • In a pressure cooker, heat oil, splutter theย cumin seeds, now add the curry leaves, cardamon and saute. Now add the chopped onions and saute till it is slightly golden brown.
  • Now add the marinated chicken, with 2 cups of water and salt and cook for 2 whistles (My chicken was done in 2 whistles, however u can cook more if you want it more soft).
  • Sprinkle the pepper powder and Serve hot with some bread or soup sticks.
