Tangy Lemongrass Noodles Soup / Soup Series

This tangy refreshing noodles soup is a perfect option to serve as a breakfast. The tomatoes are blanched and made into puree to get a silky texture. The finely chopped lemongrass is boiled in a chicken stock to get a refreshing flavour and then mixed up with a tomato puree. At this stage, before adding tomato puree, the chopped lemongrass pieces can also be strained. Instead of fresh ones, lemongrass powder can also be used. The flavour and taste of noodles gets enhanced when it is simmered and cooked in a soup.
