Manchow soup is a soup popular in Indian Chinese cuisine due to its easy preparation and hot spicy taste. It is available in many restaurants and street food carts alike. Although the soup is named after Manchuria it does not resemble any that is normally found in the cuisines of the region. The origin of Manchow soup is Meghalaya.[citation needed]

It's a dark brown soup prepared with various vegetables, scallions, and chicken (in the non-vegetarian version only), thickened with broth and corn flour, and flavored with generous doses of soy sauce, salt, garlic and chili peppers. It may also be garnished with chopped spring onions, and served with crispy dry noodles.
