Soto ayam is a yellow spicy chicken soup with lontong or nasi empit or ketupat (all compressed rice that is then cut into small cakes) and/or vermicelli or noodles, commonly found in Indonesia,[1][2] Singapore, and Suriname. Turmeric is added as one of its ingredients to get yellow chicken broth. It is probably the most popular variant of soto, a traditional soup commonly found in Indonesian cuisine. Besides chicken and vermicelli, it is also served with hard-boiled eggs, slices of fried potatoes, Chinese celery leaves, and fried shallots. Occasionally, people will add "koya", a powder of mixed prawn crackers with fried garlic or bitter Sambal (orange colored). Krupuk are a very common topping.

Different regions have their own variation of this dish, for instance:

  • Soto Ambengan, originated from Ambengan, Surabaya. Soto Ambengan is famous for its delicious koya topping.
  • Soto Banjar
  • Soto Kudus
  • Soto Medan
