Winter melon soup with chicken

Winter melon soup is a soothing and comforting dish. The winter melon is cooked in a fragrant broth until tender, with tender chicken wings and shiitake mushroom. It usually has a light refreshing sweetness with a soft texture once cooked.


  • 2,000 ml of water 

  • 2 coriander roots 

  • 3 large cloves garlic

  • A pinch of peppercorn

  • 500 g chicken wings 

  • 500 g winter melon

  • 150 g carrot

  • 100 g shiitake mushroom

  • A chicken flavor stock cube

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 1 tsp salt 

  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce 

  • A handful coriander


  1. Winter melon, Slice the skin off with a knife and discard it.

  2. Separate the melon into 4 equal parts, and then cut off the very soft part with the seeds and discard it. Slice or cube each part of the melon into evenly sized pieces.

  3. Carrots, Cut a V-shaped groove using the length of your knife’s blade. Carefully cut at a 45-degree angle on one side, then again on the opposite side to complete the V. Don’t make the grooves too deep or the flower petals will look too square. Start small, and you can always make the groove deeper if needed. Cut two more grooves on the carrot, spacing them evenly. Three grooves on the carrot will give you three petals on the flower. Then place the carrot horizontally on your cutting board then cut it into thin slices.

  4. Shiitake mushrooms, Give them a rinse and then remove the stems. Cut on each side at a 45 degree angle into the center turn perpendicularly and do the same on each side.

  5. Coriander root , wash and smashed

  6. Garlic, peeled and smashed

  7. Coriander, chopped
