Chicken Feet and Peanut Soup

Contrary to the popular belief that good, tasty Chinese soups will usually require a lot of ingredients. This simple chicken feet and peanut soup is here to prove that wrong. What is required though, is plenty of time in order to extract that sweetness from the ingredients. According to your preference, black beans can be added to this soup for extra flavour as well. I've been told by my Mum since young that food must always look decent so I've removed the claws from the chicken feet like the way I will ,with EACH and EVERY tail end of bean sprouts.


10                  chicken feet, claws removed
3/4 cup           ground nuts, washed
1 medium       dried octopus or cuttlefish
1 teaspoon     salt


Blanch the chicken feet in boiling water for a minute to remove impurities. Strain and set aside.

Bring a pot of water  (approx. 1.5 to 2 litres) to boil. When the water is boiling, add in the blanched chicken, washed ground nuts and dried octopus.

Lower heat and simmer covered for at least 2 to 3 hours. Season with a teaspoon of salt prior to serving.
