So what can you do? You can make this feel good double boiled honey dew soup for a dose of nutrition and healing for your entire family in just a few steps.

Nourishing and soothing, all it asks of you is to prepare some old chicken, shiitake mushrooms, dried oysters, ginkgo nuts, honey dew, abalone and other ingredients – that bring comforting flavor when you don’t have the energy to.

This whole recipe just needs 8 steps, 10 ingredients and a ceramic double boiler to make your life easy. Here, we follow Sidney Kan’s recipe and use the Philips Premium Collection All-In-One Multicooker to make this magical soup, aaaaaand it’s done.

We're just a small group of friends who love food, culture and Malaysia. We saw the rise of mediocre food, deteriorating relationships and missed the good old days of Malaysia where food was good, homes were warmer and full of friends and family. So we rolled up our sleeves, and made Butterkicap with the hope that it will bring people and flavors home.
