Cookbook Countdown #8 ~ CAN - Soto Mee (Noodles in Indonesian chicken soup)

 Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
Thank goodness for Cookbook Countdown!
Look what I found from my stash ~ Classic Asian Noodles
 Soto Mee (Noodles in Indonesian Chicken Soup) - pages 156-157
 Very pleased with the results!
I used spaghetti instead of yellow noodles
and finally managed to source some bean sprouts 
(otherwise I would have used thinly sliced cabbage)
I totally messed up the Bergedel (potato cake)
but still tasted good (instead of coating the patties in egg,
I went and added the egg to the patty mix!)
Hubby said it needed more salt!

I love soto ayam! Had it in Bali and it was delicious! The bergedel looks good, the "extra" egg in it must have made it more moist! :)

Love this dish Emily, and adding the egg like you did was a great idea.
