Corn kernels and colorful veggies in a translucent soup, the vegetarian sweet corn soup is refreshing and tasteful and can easily be made at home. It is a part of the Indo-Chinese cuisine and is quite versatile since it can be made with any combination of vegetables or meat (non-vegetarian version).
