Basic Chicken Soup

There's little else that says winter as soup! And I love my basic chicken soup. Here's the recipe in case you are interested.

Chicken, 1 small, cut into pieces
Butter, 1 tbsp
Bay leaf, 1
Cardamom, 2 pieces
Cinnamon, 1 small stick
Cloves, 3-4 pieces
Salt and Pepper to taste
Water, 1 litre


Oregano to garnish
Onions, 1 tbsp, finely chopped


1. In a pressure cooker heat the butter and add Bay leaf, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves and let it crackle.
2. Add the onions if using and also the salt and pepper. Once onions brown slightly add chicken and brown slightly.
3. Add water and give cooker 2 whistles. Cool and open cooker.
4. Strain the stock and keep aside. Shred a few of the chicken pieces and add to stock.
5. Serve hot sprinkled with oregano.

Note - You can use the rest of the boiled and shredded chicken to make sandwicthes with mayonnaise.
