Soto, sroto, sauto, tauto, or coto are various names referring to Indonesian aromatic soup which is made from meat broth and vegetables. We can find various types of soto in many areas of Indonesia. For example, in West Kotawaringin, Central Kalimantan. You can find a type of soto called Coto Manggala. In the local language, manggala means cassava, because the type of this soup uses cassava as the main ingredient.


Besides being made from cassava, this soup uses chicken leg. First, boil some pieces of cassava. Then mix chicken leg pieces and spices into the half-boiled cut cassava. The seasoning is made of garlic, pepper and salt. After everything is cooked, this soto is served with chopped celery leaves, fried shallots and sliced ​​boiled eggs. It tastes savory and delicious.
