Noodle soup for kids

My sonny boy was not feeling well past few days. Due to the viral fever he lost his appetite totally. He was getting wired smell in every food. I had been just scratching my head for this picky eater. His lost his interest in his favorite pasta also. The pasta was the last resort for me. When he refused to eat pasta I was really at bay. He usually eats banana and mango. He also stopped eating those. With a stuffy nose he was breathing through his mouth which was causing a bloated tummy. Today I asked him whether he would like have noodle soup. He said yes. Before cooking I asked him what kind of vegetables he would like have in the soup. I didn’t want to put vegetable of my choice. He wanted only corn and peas in it. Anyway, though he lost his taste , still loved this simple noodle soup.


Here is the recipe:
Noodle for one person ( In the packet there were six chunks of noodles, and I used one chunk for my son.)
One-fourth cup corns
One-fourth cup peas (I used frozen peas. I didn’t need much time to cook. If you feel that you need more time to cook the peas, then boil the peas separately.)
One tsp soy sauce
Two tbsp. tomato sauce
Two cup chicken broth (I used low sodium chicken broth. If you use normal, chicken broth, then you may need to use less salt.)
One egg
Salt to taste
Boil the noodles according to the instruction on the package. Once it is done, drain the water and keep aside. Take another sauce pan, add chicken broth, soy sauce, tomato sauce, peas, and corn. Bring the mixture into boil. Break the egg and carefully add into it, to keep the yolk intact. Sprinkle salt over the broth. Don't stir the broth, otherwise the yolk will break. Add the noodle into the broth. Bring heat to medium, and let it cook. After five to six minutes check the thickness of the soup. If you need a very thick soup, then let it cook, otherwise switch of the stove. Pour the soup into a soup bowl. Take out the egg, and place it on the top of the noodle.
