Step by step recipe with photo
Ezo's daughter-in-law soup (Ezo gelin çorbası) belongs to Turkish cuisine and is one of the famous soups.
A very sad legend is associated with this dish: the beautiful Ezo was married without her consent to a man in love with another. The marriage was short-lived and unhappy. Ezo married a distant relative again, but there were difficulties associated with her mother-in-law. Ezo greatly missed her family, especially her mother, and she cooked this soup with her thoughts in mind and dedicating it to her mother. In general, it was a sad story, which, however, brought popularity to this thick first course, and the soup of Eza's daughter-in-law began to be prepared, as a rule, in the cold season, as well as on the eve of the wedding.
You can take fresh mint.
Peel the onion and garlic, chop finely and fry in vegetable oil at the bottom of the saucepan in which the soup will be boiled.
Add tomato paste.
Add black pepper and paprika, as well as washed rice, bulgur, and lentils.
Pour in boiling water, bring the soup to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes over low heat.
Add dried mint and salt at the end of cooking. Stir.
Eza's daughter-in-law's soup is ready! Traditionally, it is served with lemon sliced into wedges for easy squeezing of the lemon juice into a bowl of soup. Try it, it tastes much better with lemon!
