Chicken and Coriander Soup

This is my first “Chindian” dish. For the uninitiated, “Chindian” refers to the Chinese dishes that have been Indianised in India. :) Chicken and Coriander Soup is something I’ve never had anywhere else, but in the Royal China in Mumbai. It’s delicious and simple; perfect to nurse a cold or to warm the belly. :)

It’s important to use quality chicken stock for this recipe. Homemade, if possible.


Serves 1

Prep 10 mins

Cooks 15 mins


  • 2 cups of chicken stock (see here for recipe)
  • 2 chicken drumsticks, skinless
  • 20g coriander (stem + leaves), finely chopped
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  1. Bring chicken stock to boil.
  2. Add the drumsticks and bring back to boil. Add the salt, cover the pot and simmer until the drumsticks are cooked (about 10-15minutes).
  3. Add the chopped coriander and serve hot.


  1. If you have some chicken meat scraps (from making stock or any leftovers), feel free to add to this soup for a more substantial meal.
