Tasty Facts

Danhuatang is a traditional Chinese soup made with chicken broth and flaked eggs.

– The essence of cooking the Chinese dish danhuatang is that eggs are poured into a boiling broth in a thin stream. This allows it to curl up into flake-like tufts floating in the soup. And in order for the eggs to pour in this way, they need to be broken and poured into a container, beat them well so that the yolk and protein form a homogeneous mass. And only then pour into boiling chicken broth.

— Similar recipes for danhuatang soup can be found in Europe, Japan, America and Russia. Parmesan cheese is added to Italian dishes. In French cuisine, a similar Turin soup is relevant, to which additional garlic is added. During the preparation of the Austrian soup “Eierfleckensuppe”, the egg is mixed with a small amount of flour, thus lumps – dumplings – are formed in the broth. In Russia, they prepare “Green Borscht”, only they add not Nori seaweed, but finely chopped sorrel.

— The main ingredients of danhuatang soup are chicken broth, egg and nori seaweed. In this way, it turns out to be liquid, and to make it thick and satisfying, you can add brown or white rice, as well as Tofu cheese. Often the soup is seasoned with black or white pepper, green onions are added.

– It is preferable to cook danhuatang in a cast iron pan. Everything in it warms up evenly, and it retains the heat of the broth for a long time.
