Hot and Sour Capsicum-Beans Soup

Hot and sour Capsicum-beans Soup! Yummm….sounding delicious?? Yeah really it was; some peppery-hotness, some sourness, little bit crunch of green veggies, slurpiness of noodles…. Yes, this was the whole experience of first sip of the soup imparted on my tang buds.Hot and Sour Capsicum-beans Soup

Its name is clearly implying the main ingredients of the soup i.e. capsicum and beans (French beans). Along with that the other sauces, seasoning and flavoring ingredients have provided exceptionally lip-smacking flavour to the soup.
