Soto ayam is a yellow spicy chicken soup with nasi empit (compressed rice that is then cut into small cakes) or ketupat or vermicelli or noodles, commonly found in Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. Turmeric is added as one of its ingredients to get yellow chicken broth. Besides chicken and vermicelli, it is also served with hard-boiled eggs, slices of fried potatoes, Chinese celery leaves, and fried shallots. Sometimes, slices of Lontong (compressed rice roll) are also added. Occasionally, people will add "koya", a powder of mixed fried garlic with prawn crackers or bitter Sambal (orange colored). Krupuk are a very common topping.

Different regions have their own variation of this dish, for instance:

    * Soto Ambengan, originated from Ambengan, Surabaya. Soto Ambengan is famous for its delicious koya topping.
    * Soto Banjar
    * Soto Kudus
    * Soto Medan
