Bakso anyone?

Inspired by Eating Asia's entry on Bakso , wifey came home charged with excitement after her weekly-Saturday-morning-ritual to Pasar Tani (weekly local produce open air market) announcing that we were having Bakso (meatballs) for Saturday lunch. The poultry and meat stall at the Pasar Tani sells the meatballs and wifey just had to cook the broth and boil the vermicelli.

Yes that was what we had on Saturday.

The broth above looks a bit blackish as it was mixed with sambal kicap (soy sauce with grounded cili padi (small extremely hot chillis), garlic and a little bit of sugar to taste).

Her recipe for the broth was given by Kakak who in turn was handed down by one of my brother's ex-maids who hails from Medan, Ngaini. No Bakso recipe in my wifey's blog as yet, but she has finally added another recipe after two weeks' hiatus!

I see lots of vegetables besides meatballs. We have a similar dish in Turkey, but insted of veggies, there is yoghurt and rice. I mean it's like yoghurt soup with meatballs. Your's looks like also Vietnameese Pho. Did you realize that?

Oya - wow yoghurt soup with meatballs. I love anything with yoghurt! BTW this is not a local fare - it's from Indonesia. There are a lot of bakso stalls which have mushroomed here because of a lot of migrant workers from Indonesia here in Malaysia!
