Ecoramic Pot Recipe ~ Chinese Herbal Chicken Soup

I love Chinese herbal soups in rainy period which enhances a feeling of warmth and general health. Not only nourishing, and especially great when you are feeling fatigue, this soup boosts your health. Modern Mums are very difference from the women at our mother's era. Today, a modern mum needs to juggle between career and family. We are capable but not WONDER Woman! It is just too tiring after sometime if we try to be one. During our Ah-maks’ era, their methods are those conventional way like stewing and simmering the soup over slow fire on the charcoal stove and another method like steaming to make chicken herbal soup.

But nowadays, there are many different cookers, pressure cookers or *A.I timer cookers in the market. Many of us, as busy mums at work, can’t watch fire all the time or barely half a day in kitchen to do cooking. We need at least 2 hours in kitchen to whip nutritious and healthy food for our family.

So, I started out with buying prepacked right amount of Chinese herbal mixes from NTUC Fairprices or Cold Storage, I do not need to worry on overdose. The packing is nicely packed and hygiene too. Some packing has its own mentioned functional of herbs and purposes. Choose the one you prefer to boil for your family.
