Chicken Soup with Potato Patties

Chicken Soup with Potato Patties

This aromatic Indonesian soup is traditionally served with an array of garnishes - blanched bean sprouts, wedges of hard-cooked egg, noodles, sprigs of Chinese celery and crisp fried shallot flakes are some of the customary additions. Prepare as many of the garnishes as you like.

Ingredients Edit

Chicken stock Edit

Spice paste Edit

Potato patties Edit

Directions Edit

Chicken stock Edit

  1. Place the chicken in a large stockpot and add water to cover.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat, skimming off any scum.
  3. Add the celery tops, onion, cinnamon and cardamom.
  4. Reduce the heat to low, cover partially and simmer until the chicken is opaque throughout, about 40 minutes.
  5. Transfer the breasts to a plate and let cool.
  6. Continue simmering the stock for 20 minutes longer to concentrate the flavor.
  7. Let the stock cool, then strain through a sieve into a bowl.
  8. Let stand until the fat rises to the surface.
  9. Using a large spoon, skim off the fat and discard.
  10. You should have about 8 cups (64 fl oz / 2 l).
  11. Skin and bone the chicken breasts and hand shred the meat with the grain; set aside.
  12. Reserve the remaining chicken pieces for another use.

Spice paste Edit

  1. In a blender, combine the lemongrass, galangal, onion, garlic, candlenuts or almonds, ginger, coriander, pepper, turmeric, sugar and salt.
  2. Add water as needed to facilitate blending and blend to a smooth paste.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil.
  4. Stir in the spice paste and cook, stirring frequently, until well combined and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the strained chicken stock and simmer for 15 minutes to infuse the stock fully with the paste.
  6. Taste and adjust the seasonings, if necessary.
  7. Keep warm.

Potato patties Edit

  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the oil, in a bowl.
  2. Using a potato masher or fork, mash the potatoes thoroughly, mixing well.
  3. Form into twelve 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls and flatten each into a patty 1½ inches (4 cm) in diameter.
  4. In a deep frying pan, pour in oil to a depth of 1 inch (2.5 cm) and heat to 375°F (190°C) on a deep-frying thermometer.
  5. Add the patties, a few at a time, and fry until golden brown on the underside, about 3 minutes.
  6. Turn over and continue to fry until golden brown on the second side, about 1 minute longer.
  7. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  8. Keep warm while you fry the remaining patties.
  9. To serve, bring the stock to a simmer.
  10. Distribute the shredded chicken evenly among 6 warmed soup bowls and ladle the hot stock on top.
  11. Garnish each bowl with 2 potato patties and any of the traditional garnishes (see note above).
  12. Serve hot.
