Ginseng Goji Chicken Soup (Instant Pot + Stove Top Recipe)

by · 3 comments
This Ginseng Goji Chicken Soup (花旗參杞子雞湯) is one of my favourite traditional Chinese ones that I enjoyed so much throughout the year. The soup is commonly simmered for long hours to intensify the flavours.

The ginseng has lots of health benefits. Study shows that ginseng can help to boost our immune system and lower blood sugar levels. Ginseng tastes a subtle bitterness, striking a balance of the sweetness of goji berries and candied dates in the soup. After seasoning with a bit of sea salt, this chicken soup tastes so good.

Curry Fish Balls with Radish01

Curry fish balls with radish were my most favourite childhood street food in Hong Kong. The street hawkers often used the deep-fried fish balls and boiled them in delicious spicy curry sauce. I couldn’t help myself to buy some on the way back home after school.

Whenever these curry fish balls are served in any parties, they’d be gone very quickly. This batch was made for a family gathering. The weather was a bit cold. So I kept them warm in my vacuum pot.
