Once again I apologize for the lack of updates as life have kept me extremely busy both offline and online. I will not neglect this beloved blog and hobby of mine but updates will not be as frequent as before.

That being said, whenever I do update, it will be a unique recipe for sure such as today's Soto Ayam recipe or chicken soup with rice noodles. This is a delicacy among the Malay community and one of my favorite too for its tantalizing rich taste. I have tried cooking this in the past with all sorts of noodles which you can also do so according to your preferred choice.

2 Medium sized Onions - chopped coarsely
3 Garlic ClovesGarlic Cloves
- chopped finely
1cm GingerGinger

1 tbsp Macademia Nuts - chopped finely
1 tsp Coriander PowderCoriander Powder

1 tsp Chili Paste
500g Chicken parts - bite-size pieces
6 cups Water
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp ground White PepperWhite Pepper

2 cups Rice Noodles - cooked
2 cups Bean SproutsBean Sprouts

2 Hard boiled EggsEggs

Spring Onions - for garnishing

1] Heat oil in wok and fry onions, garlic and ginger until fragrant.
2] Add macademia nuts, coriander powder and chili paste.
3] Stir fry for 3 minutes.
4] Add chicken parts and stir fry for 5 minutes.
5] Add water, bring to boil and simmer for 45 minutes.
6] Remove chicken parts, strip meat from bones, discard skin and bones.
7] Strain stock and return to boil.
8] Add salt and pepper to taste.
9] Place noodles, bean sprouts and chicken meat in bowls and pour soup over.
10] Garnish with spring onions and egg.
11] Serve hot.

- If ingredients are followed exactly, this should be perfect for 4 person.
- You can also use fried shallots and cut red chilies as garnishing.

Have made Indonesian Soto Ayam with coconut milk even though it turned out quite tasty but much prefer the one without coconut. I will try out your recipe and let you know how it goes. We are about the same age. I like cooking and eating all sort of cuisine. Thank you.
