Cooking time: 15 minutes
5 cups of water
2 cups of yoghurt
2 tbsp flour
1 clove of garlic
3 tbsp rice
1 tbsp of dried mint
To garnish: One pinch of red pepper and chopped fresh mint
How to prepare:
Put water in a saucepan. Wash the rice and add it to the pot. Chop one clove of garlic into two and add to the saucepan. Cover the pan with its lid and let it boil until the rice is tender.
Put the yoghurt in a mixing bowl, add flour and egg. Whisk with an egg beater or a fork until it becomes smooth.
Continue cooking the rice over a low heat, take one scoop from the boiling water and whisk it into the yoghurt mix. Repeat this one more time. While adding the yoghurt mix to the pan, stir it at the same time. Add salt, black pepper and dried mint. Boil it for a few more minutes.
After you pour the soup into bowls, add a red pepper and chopped fresh mint. Serve it hot. This is a traditional Turkish soup that is cooked throughout the country.
