I made this 3 weeks back. Its just chicken soup with various spices - namely, cardamon, cinnamon, star anise and cloves. The white chunks that you see are actually "ketupat" or compressed rice - it's a local Malay dish and one which I can never get enough of.
Nad gave me the recipe and I must say that I loved this simple dish very much. In addition, the "begedel" which is the brown nuggets you see in the right hand corner - most delicious when its home made. Its just mashed potatoes mixed with onions, beaten egg and minced beef. This soup complete with the rice and begedel and topped with hopped spring onions and coriander is such a scrumptious meal.
