Bakso Isi Telur - Indonesian Egg-filled Meatball Soup

"Give me bakso and I will be the happiest girl in the world"
                                                                       Obi Frakarsa, 2017




B.A.K.S.O

Bakso has always been my favorite.

Always.
No matter what the weather is, be it super cold and perfect-for-a-bowl-of-hot-soup night or scorching hot summer days, bakso has been one of the most wanted dishes at home.  
During winter, I always have  chicken or beef broth ready, with some bakso .
My kids and I adore it!
I can eat them on daily basis, although I know too much meat is not good.

In NYC, we do have options to buy bakso from Asian or oriental groceries.
But they are usually not halal or use too much MSG :(, so really not a good choice for me. 
The best choice for me is to cook it myself.
Are you ready to cook it with me?
Wanna try Bakso Isi Telur or Indonesian egg-filled meatball soup, if I may freely translated it? 

Let's start with the ingredients:

Minced beef - 250 gr. Feel free to substitute it with chicken, mutton or no meat at all.
Beef chunk - 100 gr,  for the soup broth.
Maizena - 1 spoonful
Soy sauce - 1 teaspoon
Worcestershire sauce - 1 teaspoon
Sesame oil - if desired, 1 teaspon
Salt - as needed
Pepper - as needed
Nutmeg  - as needed
Sugar - as needed
Eggs - 4
Shallots - thinly sliced
Onions - finely chopped
Spring onions - thinly sliced

How to cook:

First, boil the eggs until done and peel the shell. Put it aside. 
You can have the whole egg in one jumbo meatball or you can cut them into half or what you desire.
Boil the beef chunk for broth, add onions, salt, pepper and a bit sugar if you like, until it's nicely done and tasty. Sprinkle it with thinly slices spring onions.




Then mix the minced beef with all the sauce and spices, make sure they are all well blend.
Add one spoon of maizena to help forming the meatballs.



Shape the meatballs with eggs inside.
Cook it on a boiling pot of water, or broth will be better, until it is done and floating on the pot. Depending on the size, it takes at least 15 minutes in boiling water to cook those meatballs, but slightly longer is better so that we're sure that the meatballs are well-cooked.


Hope you enjoy this super simple recipe.
Eat it hot with some extra fried onion and chili if you like. Some also like to add egg noodles or bihun or vermicelli on a bowl of bakso.
I also like to add extra kick with apple cider vinegar.
And voilaaaa...

Fashion Culture NYC 2017

It was another great week in fashion here in New York City.
Especially for Indonesians :).
As New York Fashion Week is riveting with head-turning designs, colors, celebrities and more, we are welcoming more talented and super young Indonesian designers. 



Fashion Culture was held by Indonesia Fashion Gallery, NYC, at the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in New York City. 
Together with Wardah, Indonesia's leading halal cosmetics, IFG features wonderful works of Barli Asmara, Catherine Njoo, Dian Pelangi, Doris Dorothea, Melia Wijaya, Vivi Zubedi, G. Liem as well as two young designers, Geraldus Sugeng and Dwika x Aqil.

I have written about  Barli Asmara, Catherine Njoo, Dian Pelangi, Doris Dorothea, Melia Wijaya, Vivi Zubedi, and G. Liem in Indonesian Diversity Runway Show SS 18 in New York Fashion Week First Stage.

But it's very heartwarming to see the works of Aqil and Geraldus Sugeng. They are only 15 and 17 years old and their works are lovely!


Here are some photos for you to enjoy.












We also enjoy some great performances from Saung Budaya, the cultural troupe of Indonesian dances and arts which resides in NYC. They beautifully performed Tanjidor Kahot and Gending Sriwijaya. Love them!



Then the show continued with showcasing collections of more Indonesian designers we have coming for New York Fashion Week First Stage SS 18.



Get more great Indonesian Designers collection at Indonesia Fashion Gallery, New York City.

So, which one is your favorite?
