chicken soup with macaroni and poached egg on top, one of my favorite dinners..

i like soups for dinner and if some texture is added in the form of pasta or egg dropping...........nothing like it........my husband prefers chicken soup to any other variety and he likes pasta or any kind of noodles added to it , so this particular soup becomes a hot favorite with us.....especially when i make chicken momos, which is better than any momo joint , i bet ,......... this chicken soup is the next day's menu,.........i am sharing this secret of mine here to make the tastiest momos and use the byproduct to make a delicious soup...............i shall share the momo recipe next,before that i start with the processing the chicken..............for this i use the carcass of the chicken [ie, the remaining parts after removing the breasts n the legs...this part has soft bones and a good amount of fat attached to it ]..........i boil the chicken in a pressure cooker to get the stock....cool the stock.....and the most important thing is , i scum out the fat from the cold stock, this fat will be used to make the stuffing of momos..............now come to the stock n the pieces boiled in it...........take out the flesh attached to the bones and keep aside.....now let's proceed to the recipe.......


ingredients........for 2 servings

chicken stock as made above
chicken shreds as reserved above [separated from the bones ]
garlic 8 cloves
ginger 1 inch piece or less
green or red chilly sauce 1-2 tsp as required
soy sauce 1 tbsp
black pepper powder 1 tsp
salt if required.........usually soy sauce suffices the need
spring onions 3 , finely chop the bulbs and roughly chop the green part of one of them
boiled macaroni or any other pasta or noodles 1 cup
poached eggs 2 [ sometimes i use double fried eggs]

procedure
in a nonstick pan put in some of the fat from the stock[when cool it can be scummed easily ]..add in the finely chopped ginger garlic n onion and saute' for a while ...till they turn transparent........then add the other ingredients with the stock......let it boil n put in the pasta n greens of spring onion...........it's ready before the next boil.............pour into soup bowls and gently slide in the poached egg.........serve hot n enjoy pure bliss........

sometimes i add some shredded cabbage along with chopped onion too but it is optional.
