Egg flower water chestnut soup


7 cups water
1 bundle of pandan leaves
150gm rock sugar
100g ginkgo nuts
200g of water chestnut (chopped into cube-size)
pinch of salt to taste (optional)
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
4 tbsp water chestnut powder mixed with 8 tbsp of water

first put in pandan leaves and boil it with water and rock sugar.

at the mean time, peel and chop the water chestnuts into cube size

when the rock sugar is fully dissolved, add in the water chestnut and bring to boil. next, add in ginkgo nuts

add water chestnut powder mixture and stir on medium heat until it thickens

keep stiring clock wise. add in eggs while the soup is still moving. heat off.

tada! i love eggs so i use 2 eggs. if you're not an egg lover, then 1 is enough


  1. It looked yummy, by the way, you can replace the chestnut with barley also. I remember I ate something like this, but it was barley inside.

  2. yan, yea i think i saw that before too. but i prefer water chestnut. its more crunchy. hehe.
