Kudzu root and papaya chicken soup recipe

It's been very hot recently. Got all these great ingredients from my mother in law. Savory soup to go with rice with a touch of sweetness.

Kudzu roots apparently is a commonly used Chinese medicine. Read this from WebMD

We got organic papayas from our kampung raw and green. Kept in the fridge to prevent ripening for this soup.

Kudzu root-cut in cubes (about two Chinese bowls full)
1 Raw papaya - also cut in cubes
Chicken bones
Water enough to cover all the ingredients

For a lazy person like me, just chuck all of the above into a pressure cooker. Boil the soup for about 30 minutes after it starts hissing. I don't add salt at all.

Tada..... Homemade soup of the day!
