Yummalicious Mee Soto

This is one of my all-time favourites! It's a real easy-peasy dish to prepare. However, the 'troublesome' part is actually making the bagedil (potato balls) that goes GREAT with Mee Soto. So yummy, you can even eat it on its own. You can see bagedil in almost every Nasi Padang stall. Mee Soto will taste alil' weird and incomplete if you dun eat it with them. Heheh...Warning: It can be very addictive, once you pop, you can't stop! 

Sorry I kept forgetting to blog about this :P

Now here it is!

What you need [Cooks for 5-6]
