Simple Chicken Vegetable Soup

This one is very easy to make and mostly every day we go for it. It is very healthy, as you will get a good lot vegetables in it and also the juice of the chicken. My daughter does not like to have vegetables. So this soup works too handy for me to feed her not the vegetables but the juice of it. I strain the solids out and give her a full bowl of the soup with a slice of butter top on it. And in no time she sipped it off with a happy heart. The Daddy too feels relaxed and  rejuvenated sipping in this hot & healthy soup after a tiring day. And this soup works as a magic when the kid is down with cold or fever. A bowl of this soup, everyday twice a day, gives a good strength and help to get cured soon mainly when the lil one rejects everything but the soup during her low time. Works in same way for the adults too.

What I do- whenever I bring a whole chicken (cut in pieces) at home, I reserve the boniest parts, one or two pieces separately in Ziploc bags to cook this soup everyday.  
So here goes the recipe-

Ingredients:
For the Soup:
Chicken- 1-2 pieces (the most boney and non-fleshy parts)
Carrot- 1 small (cut in to cubes)
French Beans- 2-3 (chopped in big pieces)
Green Peas- 1/2 cup
Beat Root- 1 small (cut in to cubes)
Baby Corn- 2/3  (sliced)
*Onion -1/2 of 1 medium{sliced} ( the other half for tempering)
Garlic- 1-2 cloves
Ginger- 1/2 tea spoon (grated)
Pepper corn-2-3
Salt-According to taste
Vinegar- 1/2  (optional)

For tempering:
Garlic (chopped)- 1 tea spoon (3-4 cloves)
*Onion (chopped)- 1/2 of 1
Tomato (chopped)- 1 medium
Oil- 1 tea spoon (I prefer olive oil)

Method-
  1. Take a pressure cooker add all the ingredients under Soup and cook it until the cooker whistles for 6-7 times.

  1. Take a Pan or Kadai, heat oil. Add the garlic. Fry till it turns brown, add onion. Keep on frying till they turn brown, then add tomato. Sauté nicely till the tomato blends well with onion and start to loose oil. Add the whole mixture to the soup and cook the soup for 5mnts with a lid covered on it. Don't forget to taste. If salt is needed add that too. Serve hot before any meal or you can have it with bread too.

Note: For the Vegetarian version just omit the chicken and cook in the same procedure as instructed.
