A CARDAMOM LOADED INDONESIAN CHICKEN SOUP

There’s nothing quite as soul satisfying as a bowlful of Mom’s chicken soup recipe. Because whether you’re feeling under the weather – or just need the comforting taste of home cooked goodness, chicken soup has the ability to make it all better!

This warming soup recipe is loosely based on an Indonesian preparation that marries the savory, soulful properties of chicken broth with assertive aromatics like garlic, galangal, cinnamon and star anise. Heck, you could almost call this Indonesian recipe a soto ayam, minus the noodles you’d typically find in the original (and with a few more veggies).

But we’d say that the spice that gives this chicken soup it’s trademark pop in the flavor department is an unsung hero called cardamom.

 

WHAT IS CARDAMOM?

Cardamom is a spice made of tiny seed pods that originally hails from both Indonesia and the Indian subcontinent. 

With an initial assertive aromatic and smoky flavor profile, you may be surprised to note hints of mint in the spice’s aftertaste. So it stands to reason that this multifaceted spice is used in everything from Scandanavian bread to Thai curry to… well, everything in between!

And cardamom imparts a perfect hint of smokiness to this Indonesian style chicken soup. You’ll love both eating it – and how easy it is to make from scratch.

 

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN SOUP IN A RICE COOKER

Your Tiger rice cooker features a host of onboard cooking presets to help you make anything from a delicious frittata for brunch – to BBQ pulled pork for a tailgating feast on gameday.

For this Indonesian inspired chicken soup recipe, you’ll be using the Slow Cook function. This will ensure that the broth is deep and soulful – and that your chicken is fall-off-the-bone tender.

A press of the Start button is all it takes to prepare this homey, soul-warming soup.

Enjoy!
