Nothing is better to warm up the body from rainy season and a bit of cold weather than a bowl of piping hot sup bakso ayam (chicken meatballs soup). Those that have visited Indonesia probably have experienced the many sup bakso sellers scatter in the many side streets around the country. Back when I was still in school, a bowl of sup bakso is definitely among my favorite food. :)

Bakso ayam (chicken meatballs)

We like our bakso (meatballs) bouncy and juicy. If you have access to Asian markets, you probably notice that the frozen aisle is usually stocked up with a variety of meatballs, from fish, shrimp, beef, chicken, pork, cuttlefish, e.t.c. You cand definitely buy them ready made, but if you are feeling adventurous, making your own bakso (meatballs) is not difficult and you can give my bakso ayam (chicken meatballs) recipe a try.

Make a noodle bowl

I usually enjoy my bowl of sup bakso ayam with steamed white rice, but I have to admit that it is much more common for people to boil some noodles and add into the bowl of soup to make a complete meal. The most popular noodles we use is rice noodles (Indonesian: bihun), followed with flat rice noodles (Indonesian: kwetiau), and finally egg noodles (Indonesian: bakmi). You can even try using udon, soba, or ramen. :)
