  1. The soup was too good, and I added the veggies on hand instead of greenbeansetc, I added asparagus , mushrroms.
    Also a teaspoon of vinegar enhances the taste very much.

    1. Hi Chethana,

      Usually, organic broths do not have MSG. I know Kroger sells its own Kroger brand vegetable broth (in a can) that also says “no MSG”.

  2. Hi heal and Abuja this is pinki from Ohio
    Last couple days I am try to watch sweet court soup video but I can’t open I don’t know why can u do something plz?

  3. do v have boil d sweet corn if its in raw form…as m from india,mumbai….v get everything fresh…n i use our normal water instead of vegetable stock is dat ok….

    1. Hi Ashwini,

      Yes, you would have to crush and cook the corn for a little longer if you use fresh. Water will work, but the broth will give an extra flavor boost.

  4. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    I love your website. Whenever I want to make something special for my family, I open your website. My husband loves mutter paneer and he always asks did you learn any new recepie.
    Today, I was just checking if I can get a nice recepie for creamy tomato soup but ….. 🙁

    I would love to know about that if you can show us that recepie.


  5. Hi Hetal/Anuja,
    Can we add- seasoned salt instead of regular salt(gives the chinese flavor).
    Also how do i put in an egg white into the soup (at what stage)
    Thanks..You girls rock!!!

  6. I like your website and the way you present food.But this soup does NOT require onion,ginger,garlic nor the frying part. Just put the cream style corn,veggies,stock and the rest to boil and egg can be added at the last.

  7. Hi Anuja and Hetal,

    Must begin by saying you guys are doing a fantastic job, the videos are so simple and easy to follow.

    Just wanted to check, am unable to find Creamy Style Corn and really want to try this recepie. However, we do get a regular can of Corn, is there a way I can substitute this instead of Creamy style corn?

    Thank you very much.

    1. Hi Megha,

      Cream style corn is ground up a bit where you cannot see whole kernels. You may be able to put the whole corn in a food processor and give it a whirl. It may also have a little added sugar.

      1. thanks hetal, will try this today? do u recommend adding a little cream to the corn after grinding it in a mixer.

        and once agaoin, love your recepies and the way of presenting them.

        1. Just happened to have a can of Cream Style Corn in my pantry. The ingredients say: Corn, Water, Sugar, Corn Starch and Salt…no cream.

  8. Hi Hetal & Anuja,

    I’m very much impressed by ur cooking. U 2 r doing great job. Since i’m a pure south indian vegetarian(not even eat garlic),i request u to post more vegetarian dishes. If possible can u show us the making of puris for pani puri. i’ll be eagarly waiting for ur post.
    thank you,

  9. Hi Sejal,

    Thanks for your kind words and we are so happy for you. The Pav Bhaji is a fabulous recipe and we are glad you impresses your mom.

    Regarding the Vegetable broth, it is available at regular grocery stores. The vegetable Stock cubes work out just as well, you add 1 cube in 1 cup(8 fluid oz) of boiling water. This recipe calls for 2 cups of liquid (1.5 cup of stock + 1/2 cup of water) so you can use 2 cubes, put them in 2 cups of boiling water and add them in at the right time.

    It is possible to make vegetable broth at home, we will have a recipe out very soon.

  10. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    Just wondering what if I can’t find vegetable broth. Can I use vegetable stock cubes? If so how many cubes to water do I need?

    I would also like to tell you that since I have discovered this website not only have I been making some recipes but I have become more confident with my cooking! You 2 are doing a great job! Even my mum is impressed with the Pav Bhaji I made last week!

    Thanks again!
