Soto Ayam Recipe

Soto AyamPlease welcome my friend F at Salt N Turmeric to Rasa Malaysia today as she shares her killer recipe of Soto Ayam with us. Soto Ayam is basically chicken soup and it’s very popular in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. There are various adaptations of Soto Ayam in the region but Salt N Turmeric’s version is simply scrumptious. If you wish to learn more about Malay cooking, Salt N Turmeric offers lots of delicious Malay/Malaysian recipes.

Soto Ayam
Guest Writer: Salt N Turmeric

Hi all! Today, I am the guest writer at Rasa Malaysia. Some of you may have already known me and some have not. If you are a regular at my blog, you will see that I tended to cook more Malaysian food than anything else. I am still an amateur when it comes to cooking. However there is one dish that I promise once you have tasted my recipe, you will want more, that is Soto Ayam.

For New Year’s eve, Michael and I were invited to Rasa Malaysia’s place. As usual, it was a pot luck party and everybody would bring something to the table. I was requested to make soto ayam. At first I was surprised since it was only recently at my Raya Open House that I made this dish but I cannot blame her, my soto ayam is dangerously addictive! You can enjoy it with rice cakes or vermicelli noodle or both.

Do try out my Soto Ayam recipe and experience it for yourself!

    That looks fantastically delicious! I love creamy chicken soups and the coconut milks sounds like the perfect way to make it creamy without being too heavy:-)

We called those: Soto Banjar from Borneo Island or Soto Ayam Lamongan from Java, and they have a little bit difference taste.
