A Classic Chinese Boiled Soup (炖汤) To Complete The Meal
This chinese boiled soup is traditionally cooked using pork ribs. However, you can substitute with chicken like what I did and it tastes just as good. There may be slight variations on ingredients when preparing this soup. However, the star of this dish is of course the lotus root. The inclusion of roasted cuttlefish and peanuts are for added flavour, fragrance and sweetness. It’s so good, no meal seems complete without the soup.
