    TIPS & VARIATIONS

    1. You can add vegetables of your choice like mushrooms, cabbage, bell pepper to make dish more nutritious.
    2. I have added a big pinch of sugar but you can skip it if sweet corns are too sweet.
    3. You can adjust consistency of the soup but adding corn flour paste.
    4. You can also add canned creamed corn instead of making sweet corn paste.But i personally prefer taste of homemade corn paste in this soup and its healthy.
    5. Some people also like adding soya sauce which gives a nice flavour to the soup, if you wish you can add 1/4 teaspoon, dont add more it will change the flavour and color of the soup.
    6. If you dont have vinegar ,you can also add lemon juice or apple cider vinegar or skip it.
    7. You can also use canned sweet corn.
    8. You can replace corn starch with potato starch or arrowroot powder.
    9. Coriander leaves can also be added for garnishing.
