A simple Meatball Soup

I love simple meatball soups. Simple yet tasty. Rich in flavour and really healthy.
The dieting phase is not over yet, so what can be better choice than a bowl of spicy & flavourful meatball soup!
I used chicken mince for it is lower calorie meat. And I flavoured them with some South-Asian herbs, like lemongrass & kaffir lime leaf . I simply love these flavours. These flavours make it really special.

Ingredients for "Meatball Soup":

  1. Chicken mince 150 gm (I didn't use all the meatballs for soups)
  2. Egg (only white, leave yolk) 1 large
  3. Onion 1 medium (minced)
  4. Garlic 6 cloves (4 minced and 2 chopped)
  5. Lemongrass 1 stalk (mince white part..keep the rest)
  6. Kaffir lime leaf 6-7
  7. Ginger 1/2 inch (minced) and 2-3 thin slices
  8. Green chilli 2 or as spicy you want (finely chopped)
  9. Coriander leaf 2 table spoon (finely chopped)
  10. Red bellpepper 1 small (cut into thin strips)
  11. Pak choy 2 bunch
  12. Salt according to taste
  13. Black pepper (freshly ground) according to taste
  14. Vegetable oil 1 table spoon
