Rambutan Balls Soup (Sup Bakso Rambutan)

Wednesday, July 9, 2008


I made this soup almost two months ago, when I was still living in Montreal. But since I promised Deetha that we would post it at the same time I had to wait for her to make it first. After she made it around last month, I did not have time to write the recipe due to my moving and laziness as well, so I asked her to postpone the date to post.
Today I pushed myself to type it and share it with you my beloved readers...and today is the day that we agree to post it.

First we have to make the meat balls.
- 300gr of ground chicken meat
- 300gr of ground prawn meat
- 100gr of clear vermicelli, boil with water until cooked and cut into short strings
- 100gr of black fungus, boil with water until cooked and chop into small pieces
- 6 cloves of garlic
- 4 cloves of small red onion
- 1Tbsp of oyster sauce
- 2Tbsp of fish sauce
- 1Tbsp of sesame oil
- 1tsp of ground white pepper
- 2 green onion, chop thinly
- 2Tbsp of tapioca flour
- 1 egg
- sugar
- oil for frying
- water for boiling


Directions to make boiled and fried meat balls:
Grind garlic and onion until smooth and then put it in a mixing bowl. Mix it with all of the ingredients, except tapioca flour, oil and water. Mix it well. Add tapioca flour and mix it well again. You may add more egg if you think it needs more liquid, do not add water. Prepare boiling water on a stove. Make a ball using two spoons and place the ball in the boiling water. Do it again and again for half of the mixture, leave another half for the fried ones. Once the ball comes up to the surface, take it out of the pot and keep it aside.
To make the fried ones, make the ball with two spoons and then deep fry it with hot oil under medium high heat until brownish. Keep it aside.


To make soup:
- Boiled and fried meat balls
- 4 carrots, peel of the skin and cut into small pieces
- bunch of sweet peas, discard the hard edges
- bunch of pak choi, cut into 6cm in length
- 3 green onion, chop thinly
- 5 cloves of garlic, chop thinly
- 4 cloves of small red onion, chop thinly
- 1 block of chicken broth
- 1tsp of ground nutmeg
- 1tsp of ground white pepper
- water
- salt
- sugar
- oil for saute
- fried onion


Directions to make soup:
In a pot, boil some water. Once it is boiling, add 1 block of chicken broth, nutmeg and pepper. Stir it well. Add carrot and cook for 3minutes. Add pak choi and continue to cook for 2minutes. Add sweet peas and while doing it, saute garlic and onion with a little bit of oil in a small pan until fragrant. Instantly pour it into the pot. Adjust the taste with salt and sugar and turn off the heat. At last sprinkle green onion. Serve it hot and sprinkle some fried onion if you like.
