Veggie Spring Roll and Manchow Soup

Manchow Soup is my Hubby's favourite Chinese Soup.Yesterday, for his B'day made this soup for him. I haven't tried this soup on myself only in restaurants we tasted, this was the first time cooked myself. It came out very nice and tasty and my Hubby enjoyed a lot with chewy noodles and veggies. First, in my list of recipes for my hubby's b'day got tom yam soup. But, my Hubby didn't want shrimps for his b'day menu. Then, i decided to make Manchow Soup from Siddhi's blog.
