  4. Make paste of corn starch with about 2-3 tbsp water and add to soup slowly monitoring the thickness you want. You may have to use more corn starch or less. It depends on how thick you want.

Notes
Do not cook for more than 2-5 min after adding corn starch as it will make the soup thin rather than making it thick.
