    Ingredients
    Serves: 3

    Method
    Prep:3min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:13min 

    1. Drain the sweetcorn from the tin and rinse it under running water. Place the corn and a cereal bowl of water in the blender and blend them coarsely to keep some texture. Pour the mixture into a small pot and bring to the boil.
    2. Add sugar, turn to low heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon of water. Stir in the eggs to the pot and stir well. Bring to a boil and stir in the cornflour paste. Stir well until the soup is slightly thickened and serve.

    Cornflour paste:

    Cornflour or starch paste is an ideal thickening agent in Chinese cooking. Simply mix 1 part of cornflour with 1 and 1/2 parts of cold water.

    Tip;

    Mixing eggs with 1 tablespoon of water before pouring into the soup can help making smaller and smoother egg flowers in the soup.
