Kelo Kuning


My grannies called it "Kelo Kuning", means yellow soup in Javanese. This soup served by generations in my family. A tasty clear soup made of fish stock, with fishes themselves, enriched with the fragrance of lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, exotically spiced with garlic, ginger and turmeric, I can never help myself craving for this soup, specially in summer. Any kind of fish will do well, but milkfish will be best.
