15 minute Instant Pot Sweet Corn Chicken Soup

In just 15 minutes, you will be sipping this delicious soup…

Sweet corn chicken soup is a popular Indo-Chinese soup and one of my favourite soups. In the Instant Pot, this soup can be made effortlessly. Throw all the ingredients into the stainless steel pot and pressure cook for 5 minutes, followed by quick pressure release. After that, switch to saute mode and let soup come to a boil. Add the beaten egg slowly and stir continuously, egg will turn into strands. Finally, add the aromatic sesame oil to make the soup taste delicious.

Serve while this soup is warm and enjoy.
