Photos of Ingredients :

– Chicken soup – 500ml
– Corn flour mixture ( 1 tbsp Corn flour mix with 4 tbsp water)
– 1 Beaten egg
– Salt (to taste)

Simple Way of Cooking :
(1) Soak white fungus until it expands, rinse and trim the firm bottom part, divide them into small pieces.
(2) Remove the skin and seeds of the luffa, cut it into pieces with bigger sizes.
Note : Luffa, unlike its outer skin, the flesh is soft inside. As it easily softens and shrinks when cooking, it is better to cut it into pieces with bigger size.
(3) Reheat the chicken soup. When it boils, add in white fungus, boil for 2 minutes, add in luffa, when the soup boils again, add in corn flour mixture, Keep on stirring until the soup thicken.
(4) Now, slowly stream in beaten egg and constantly stir in one direction until the egg is cooked. Add in salt to taste and white pepper powder, ready to serve.
