  • 1 kilogram chicken bones

  1. Make a very basic chicken soup using chicken bones and scallions.
  2. Add ground ginger.
  3. Crack eggs into a glass and check for blood spots. Whisk the eggs together in a bowl. Using the fork, lift the egg out of the bowl and allow it to stream into the pot one fork at a time. Repeat until all of the egg is used.
  4. Add potato starch in a slurry to the simmering soup until slightly thickened.
