Cooking Tips

Don’t overbeat the eggs to keep those streaks of egg whites distinct from the yolks. Stir in a light slurry of cornstarch and water towards the end, and you’ve got yourself a soup that looks like it came out of a top Asian restaurant. Don’t forget the Sri Racha on the side, of course!
