Pork Satay (Happy Call) & Indonesian Style Bakkut Soup

These two dishes are best friends, they're meant to be served together
One of many popular choices amongst Indonesians

Nice and juicy meat pieces grilled in skewers

Indonesian style bakkut soup, such a hearty dish
Very different from Singapore bakkut teh which is more herby in taste, the Indonesian style is more simple in the making and it has plain taste

Both recipes are from my mum

For the pork satay
What you need:

500g pork loin, diced
1 tsp coriander, pulse twice in food processor
6 shallots, halved
5 cloves of garlic, halved
5 candlenuts, cut small
some palm sugar (gula melaka)
some dark sweet soya sauce (kecap manis)
  1. Mix coriander, shallots, garlic, candlenuts, palm sugar and blen in food processor til smooth
  2. Mix with pork til well incorporated, mix in kecap manis and salt til well blended
  3. Arrange the pork in skewers and grill on happy call pan which has been lightly greased til brown on both sides
For the bakkut soup
What you need:

3 cloves of garlic, sliced thinly
400g pork spare ribs
1 pack of salted vegetables
salt, pepper
  1. Boil a pot of water with the ribs. Upon boiling, discard all floating residue, simmer for another 1 hour to make the ribs tender
  2. Sautee garlic til golden brown, pour into the soup 
  3. Rinse salted vegetables well, to reduce the saltiness, and cut as desired
  4. Pour into the soup, stir well
  5. Season with salt and pepper, adjust the taste, cook til boiling
  6. Off heat


  1. Nice satay and soup. I can see 'char' in your satay. I also own HappyCall but don't know it can be used for making satay. I like to know do I need to cover the lid when making satay ?

    1. hi Vivian, thks :)
      yes i did cover the lid but i didnt lock :)

  2. Drooling over your satay! Have not eaten satay for quite sometime! And I love salted vege soup, delicious!

  3. how long did u grill the satay using HCP?

    1. hi, i didnt time when i grill
      i just kept on checking and remove the satay from the pan when it's already cooked like what's seen in the pic above
      its not long, perhaps less than 10 minutes for each side
