[Latest Recipe] Winter Melon Soup with Pork Balls

[Latest Recipe] Winter Melon Soup with Pork Balls

This is currently one of my favourite home-cooked Chinese soups and unlike my other Chinese soups which typically use chicken or pork, this recipe uses ikan bilis broth as the soup base. As a result, it is relatively easier and quicker because without the meat, you can skip the step of blanching them before cooking, or simmering the soup for some time to extract the sweetness of the meat. This soup is very healthy, high in calcium (thanks to the ikan bilis) and has cooling properties as winter melon is known to remove “heatiness”. This recipe was adapted from my mum’s original winter melon soup. When she cooked this, she used plain water and later seasoned the soup with light soy sauce, but I find the soup too bland for my palate. So I thought of adding ikan bilis for a naturally flavourful and high-calcium soup base.
