Bakso, Indonesian Meatballs Soup

We Indonesian called this Bakso. It's a simple delicious side dish adopted from chinese dim sum, there's only meatballs within a clear stock, with a sprinkle of finely chopped spring onion -or sometimes celery- and crispy fried onion. It usually served with noodles, and will be more delightful with some "accessories" to enrich its appealing as steamed tofu, chopped vegetables, fried and steamed wontons.
