List of Indonesian soups

Soto ayam, Indonesian counterpart of chicken soup.
Sayur asem, vegetable tamarind soup.
Sop buntut, Indonesian oxtail soup.
Konro, spicy ribs soup.

This is a list of Indonesian soups. Indonesian cuisine is diverse, in part because Indonesia is composed of approximately 6,000 populated islands of the total 18,000 in the world's largest archipelago,[1] with more than 300 ethnic groups calling Indonesia their home.[2] Many regional cuisines exist, often based upon indigenous culture and foreign influences.[1] Indonesian soups are known to be flavoursome with generous amount of bumbu spice mixture.

Indonesian cuisine has a diverse variety of soups.[3] Some Indonesian soups may be served as meals,[3] while others are lighter.[4] The Makassarese of South Sulawesi, Indonesia are known for preparing "hearty beef soups"[5] that also use coconut and lemongrass as ingredients.[6]
