Chicken Soup ala Wedding Reception (Sup Pengantin)

Friday, February 26, 2010

There are various kinds of soup and we can find soup almost in any cultures or nations. One of many soups I remember dearly is the one which usually served during wedding reception in Indonesia. Since this kind of soup is identical to a wedding reception, it is called Sup Pengantin, literally means Bride Soup. It has many kind of ingredients, including meats and veggies and the taste is so refreshing. I would like to share this recipe to all my Indonesian foodie blogger in the event of Masbar February 2010 edition.

- 3 whole chicken leg, cooked and cut the meat in cubes. Keep the broth aside
- 4 carrots, peeled and cut
- 3 potato, peeled and cut
- bunch of cauliflower, separate the florets
- bunch of snow peas, discard the hard parts
- 3 stalk of celery, cut
- 1 can of button mushroom or other mushroom as preferred
- 1 can of quail eggs
- 1/2 can of luncheon meat or chicken wiener, cut
- some cooked macaroni pasta as preferred
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 6 cloves of shallot, chopped
- 1 Tbsp of margarine for sauteing

Put the broth in a pot and boil. Once it is boiling, add potato, carrot, mushroom, cooked chicken meat, and quail eggs consecutively. Meanwhile, saute chopped onion and shallot with margarine in a pan until fragrant and add luncheon meat or chicken wiener and continue to saute for 3minutes. Transfer all at once into the chicken broth in the pot. Add pepper, nutmeg, salt and sugar. Adjust the taste. Then saute cauliflower, celery and snow peas in a pan for 2-3minutes. Transfer it into a serving bowl to keep the crunchiness.
To serve: put some cauliflower, celery and snow peas in a bowl. Pour the chicken broth and soup over. Sprinkle some fried shallot.
