So I've decided this weekend to make myself some sesame chicken and egg drop soup. I've gathered supplies, and plan on doing this recipe:
I didn't want anything fancy in my egg drop soup, I saw many recipes calling for ginger and soy sauce, but I think the plain broth/egg recipe will be best.
The only thing I can't find is chile paste. None of the local stores have it (or it is hidden in some place I can't guess).
Do you think not having the chile paste will alter the intended flavor? Also, some egg drop soup recipes call for only egg whites, others just say beat the whole egg. Any thoughts on which would be better?
