Green Chicken Soup

I got this recipe from my neighbour. When she said it can be eaten with bread too, I wanna try it immediately as I was having some whole wheat bread to be finished. It was a good combination and this soup goes well with idli too. Thank you Sangi for the wonderful recipe.Green Chicken Soup 1Ingredients
