Macaroni Chicken Soup

It has been a while since I had a bowl of macaroni soup. So I decided to make this simple dish last Friday for dinner. Coincidentally, Ramadan is just around the corner and I have been cracking my brains to list down dishes that I can prepare for iftar, so this will be in my list :)

The soup is my mom's simple chicken soup. So easy to make yet tasty. Great for children or for the sick.

Ingredients
half chicken cut into 4 pcs, skin removed
2.5 - 3L water
2 potatoes, cut into chunks
1 carrot, cut into chunks
4 clove garlic
1-1.5 cm ginger
8 shallots, thinly sliced
1 tbsp white peppercorns, freshly ground ( you can add black peppercorns if want it to be a little more spicy)
salt to taste
some chinese celery, chopped
lime, sliced (optional)
macaroni, boiled till al-dente

Method
1. Fried sliced shallots till brown and keep both the oil and fried shallots
2. Blend garlic and ginger into paste
3. Boil water and once it starts to bubble, add garlic/ginger paste and ground pepper
4. Add chicken pieces and let the soup boil for about 20 minutes
5. Add chinese parsley, carrots and potatoes and continue to simmer till they are cooked
6. Once the soup is done, take chicken pieces out and shred the chicken meat
7. Put cooked macaroni into a bowl or plate, pour soup over the macaroni
8. Sprinkle shredded meat, fried shallots with its oil and chinese parsley onto the macaroni
9. Squeeze some lime juice and serve hot
