Hanoi Chicken Noodle Soup

 

This is one of the many warming winter soups that has been popularized
in Hanoi, and is now commonplace throughout the country.

1 fresh chicken (about 3 lbs / 11/4 kg)
1-2 tablespoons dried shrimp, rinsed and drained
1 lb (500 g) pork ribs, cut into large pieces
12 cups (3 liters) water, with 1 teaspoon salt added
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 cup (4 oz/100g) diced shallots (about 12 shallots) or 1 large onion, diced
4 baby leeks or spring onions, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
8 oz (250 g) dried string-like rice noodles (bun)
1 egg, beaten and pan-fried, cut Into strips
4 tablespoons Crispy Fried Shallots
10 oz (300 g) Vietnamese Pork Sausage , cut into thin strips (optional)
Ground white pepper
1 spring onion, sliced, to garnish
Sprigs of coriander leaves (cilantro), to garnish
Yellow Bean Sauce or chili and hoisin sauce, to serve

 

Accompaniments
1 lemon or lime, sliced
2 finger-length red chilies, sliced
2 cups (100 g) bean sprouts, blanched
2 spring onions, sliced lengthwise into thin strands
1/2 cup (70 g) sliced banana blossom
Sprigs of Asian basil leaves

 

 


1 In a stockpot, boil the chicken, dried shrimp and pork ribs in the salted
water for aoout 20 minutes, skimming off any foam that floats to the sur face. Reduce the heat to medium, season with the sugar, fish sauce and pep-
per, and simmer covered for about 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked.
Remove the chicken from the stock and set aside to cool. Add the shallots,


baby leeks or spring onions and onion to the stock, and mix well. Simmer
for another 20 minutes, adjusting the seasoning with more sugar or fish
sauce if desired. Keep the soup hot over very low heat.
2 When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred into thin strips along
the grain. Set aside.
3 Bring a separate pot of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and boil until
soft, 5 to 7 minutes or longer as needed. Remove and rinse with cold water,
then drain. Transfer to individual serving bowls and top with the egg, chick-
en strips, .sausage and Crispy Fried Shallots. Pour the hot soup into each bowl, sprinkle with pepper and garnish with spring onion and
coriander leaves (cilantro). Serve hot with the Accompaniments and Yellow
Bean Sauce.
