Indian Chicken Soup

Well, seems as though sickness (aka: a cold) has decided to visit our family again.  It's been awhile, thankfully.  But lo, the hubby and I are sick.  And one of my favorite comfort foods for the cold is chicken soup!  Many months ago I was going to make some, and felt inspired to tweak my recipe to reflect an Indian dish.  It's probably not really "authentic", but it's pretty good.

Indian Chicken Soup
3 chicken breasts, boneless/skinless
1 tsp. each ginger/garlic paste
1/2 onion, chopped
1 pkg. frozen mix veggies
some cabbage, chopped (optional)
1/4 c. chicken bouillon granules
1 tsp. each: turmeric, cumin, garam masala
1 bay leaf
1 serrano chile, de-seeded and chopped
1-2 tomatoes chopped
handful chopped cilantro
5-6 c. water

Combine all ingredients in pot, bring to boil.  Reduce heat to medium/low and simmer for about 45 minutes.

(Chicken can either be:
~ cubed before cooking
~ or, you can pull out the cooked chicken pieces, cut up and return to pot before serving.)
