Clear Chicken Soup

Monday, October 29, 2007

This is the simplest recipe of soup. Having said that, people with no or limited experience in the kitchen will be able to cook this yummy soup. Hey ya...and winter is just around the corner, why not make it for your own?

- 3 chicken leg (some may call it chicken maryland, no idea where they got this name though), cut into 4 pieces each
- 3 carrot, peel, wash and cut into small pieces
- 4 potato, peel, wash and cut into small pieces
- 3 green onion (or leek...but I prefer green onion), chop into small pieces
- 1 lb snow peas, clean the hard part and wash
- 2 celery, chop into small pieces
- 1 onion (
bawang bombay-Indonesian), chop into small pieces
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp ground white pepper
- salt
- pinch of sugar
- oil for saute
- 2 lt water

Put chunky chicken into a pot and add water. Bring to boil and throw away the blackish flake from the broth. Add potato and when it is half cooked add carrot, celery and snow peas. Add nutmeg, white pepper, salt and sugar. Cover the pot for 2minutes.

In a frying pan saute the chopped onion with a little bit of oil until brownish. Add the green onion and continue to saute for 1minute. Put the whole thing into the pot.
Do not forget to taste it and adjust the amount of nutmeg, pepper, salt and sugar as you like.
Done! and it's enough for the whole family...(approx. 6 serving).

PS: I do not like to put garlic, since it makes the soup looks unclear. No MSG added...I replace it with a little bit of sugar, so it's healthy!

Garlic will make it tastier though.. perhaps you could fry the garlic first... (huahaha.. a suggestion came from the person who cannot even boil water..)

Lidia Sianturi said...'s true...but by frying it first doesn't make any different to the effect garlic makes to the color of broth.
Just pour some fried onion on top of it will make it tastier too.
