ABC Soup (ABC 汤)

ABC Soup (ABC 汤)

Recipe source :  Doris Choo

ABC soup is very popular among Malaysians, especially the Chinese community. And there are so many variations in making this delicious soup. Some versions use tomatoes, while others added sweet corns to the soup. 

I like to add peppercorns to give it an extra zing. The peppercorns warmed up our tummies. Mmm, it is a very satisfying soup!


3 whole chicken drumsticks ( about 500g )
300g carrots
200g big onions
300g potatoes
1/2 Chinese soup spoon pepper corns ( optional )
3 litres water
1 tsp salt , or to taste

 Big onions , cut into wedges

Carrots, cut into chunky rings

 Potatoes, cut into chunks

Chicken drumsticks


1.  Add water into a large pot.
2.  Add all the ingredients into the pot.
3.  Bring to full boil, then reduce to medium flame and continue to simmer for one to one and a half hours, depending how tender you want the chicken and vegetables to be.
4. Remove all impurities that may float to the surface of the soup.
5. Add salt to taste.


  1. One of the simplest and the yummiest soup. I love it with a side condiment of see yau and chili padi!

  2. Yes, it is simple to prepare, delicious and very popular.
