Here’s one that was sent to me by a reader in Jakarta, Indonesia – thank you! Spicy green chilli soup – green chilli seems to be gaining popularity in Indonesia. Let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.
The noodle block.
A dual packet of soup base and chilli powder.
Here’s the chilli powder atop the soup base.
Green chilli sauce on the left and seasoned oil on the right.
Has a strong green chilli scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken with panko, Lindberg-Snider Red Baron BBq Seasoning and Mexcene, Walla Walla sweet onion, hard boiled egg and red, orange and yellow bell pepper. The noodles are plump and suck up lots of the broth’s flavor. The broth has of course the green chilli element, but the base, seasoned oil’s onions and regular red chilli powder’s elements retain their character separately as well. One thing that green chilli brings is heat – and not an overwhelmingly painful heat (probably for most but not for me) but one that intermingles with the other flavors. This is excellent. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8888327831123.
