Mee Ayam Soto @ Spiced Chicken Noodle Soup

My weekend brunch plan is finally arrived. I've been looking forward to another homemade local spiced noodle soup for a long time and yes.... finally ! Personally, I don't often take this kind of noodle soup at the food stall due to the thick layer of oil they're serving with the soup. I'm not such a fussy person but it just automatically turn me off. :o(  I'm glad I'll be able to try making this comfort noodle soup at home..... at last. >o< This spiced noodle soup also called as 'Mee Soto' which is originated from Indonesia and 'Soto' also meaning as soup. The soup itself is very unique, due to the spices used on it causing the superb wave of aroma to go along with the noodle. Its simply wonderful.

I have my homemade pure chicken stock for the preparation of this 'Soto' dish. And with the additional of the cooked blended spices, the soup turns out awesome good !

Ingredients for Soto Soup :
one whole chicken breast
2-1/2 Litre of  water (add more if possible)
1 large ornion, skinned
1/2 cup  coconut milk

Spices for the soup :
5  cloves
3  star anise
2  cinnamon stick
3  cardamon
(packed bunjut mixed spices is highly recommended)

Blended paste :
1 large onion, sliced
1" ginger, sliced
3 shallots, sliced
5 glove of  garlic
1 lemongrass, sliced only the bottom stick
1 tspn   turmeric powder
1 tspn   cummin powder
1 tspn   coriander powder
(blend everything turned into smooth paste)

Method :
(1) preheat a pot with the 2-1/2 litre of water & onion then bring it to boil. Once the water is ready, throw in the chicken breast then let to boiled over low heat till cooked.
(2) tear chicken meat into shreds after cooled completely, set aside.
(3) now, preheat a frying pan with 3 TB cooking oil then saute the blended paste till fragrant.
(4) next, add cooked blended paste, extra lemongrass & mixed spice (bunjut packet) into hot boiling chicken stock and let to boil for about 15 minutes or till aromatic. Then add in salt & pepper, coconut milk and other seasoning to taste. Set aside & ready to serve.

TO ASSEMBLE
(1) blanched about 1 kg of yellow noodle & some bean sprout over hot boiling water till cooked.
(2) fried some glass noodle & shallots for topping.
(3) keep chicken meat well shredded.
(4) some green vegetables (cilantro is highly recommended) & pickled chilies to go along.
(5) for serving, place some cooked noodle to a bowl or serving plate. Top with shredded chicken meat, bean sprouts, vegetable, fried glass noodle & fried shallots. Finally, pour in the aromatic spiced soup and serve.

However, you might as well tried using other type of noodle, for instance vermicelli pasta, rice noodle or anything as personal preference. Hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy & have a great week ahead everyone !
