Crab and Corn Soup

I thought up of this Crab Balls in Corn Soup when I bought a pack of imitation crabs (crab stick) and wondered what to make of it.

I remembered having a crab and corn soup at the mall before, so I decided to cook my own version of the soup.

First, I mashed the crab sticks, then added onion, egg, breadcrumbs, flour and salt and pepper and formed into balls.

Then I boiled water and add the balls and the corn, then added the cornstarch slurry to make it thick and creamy.

I finished off with beaten eggs after turning it off, then garnished with spring onion and 3 drops of sesame oil…..Saraaaap.

1/4 Kg. Crab meat or Chopped Crabstick
