A veggie-packed soup with an amazingly balanced flavour, the Talumein Soup is a popular Chinese recipe that can be found on most Oriental restaurant menus in India as well. The soup basically comprises noodles and veggies, flavoured with soy sauce and held together with vegetable stock. It is true that this soup is as good as its vegetables. Add as many veggies as you can, and sauté them only slightly, so their crispness is retained. If you make them mushy, the soup will lose its appeal.
