To test my taste buds, I tried with the ingredients which I found and tasted in roadside shop soup which I tasted 5 years before. And my taste buds test was approved with exact taste and texture which I got from my soup. Yeah I very happy with the outcome and it tasted awesome in very bite of corn flakes and mushrooms and it took back to my Chennai days.. Try this at your home and sure you guys will admit what I am saying here.
( Note: I believe commercially they use ajinomoto in their recipes to enhance the taste. But I avoided and didn't find any difference of taste in my soup.)
