Tovuq shurvali Ugra (Home made macaroni in chicken soup)
"Ugra" is favorite dish of my mom, whenever you ask her what to cook, she will answer "Ugra":) It is really delicious meal. You can cook "Ugra" in "Tovuq shurva" (chicken soup) or in "Qaynatma shurva" (Beef soup) or any soup you like. I like it in chicken soup. In some places of Uzbekistan people call it "Un oshi".
50 ml of cold water
1 tsp of salt
Plain flour as needed
Spring onions and sour cream for serving
For noodles, slightly beat up egg with water and salt. Start adding flour, until you will form a medium hard dough. Knead well, cover and let it rest for 15 min. Roll up the dough in flat thin circle. Generously sprinkle with flour on surface, flour will prevent the dough from sticking. Now roll tightly around itself forming a log. Cut the log into very thin slices, with a very sharp knife. Open up these slices and let them dry for about 15-20 min.
Take out chicken and all of potato from soup and add in noodles.Cook until noodles are soft, for about 2-3 min. Use less than half of a noodles at once. Serve chicken separately in a plate and soup in bowls, sprinkling with spring onions and adding sour cream. YUM!
You can keep rest of the noodles for the next time. Put them in dark, not humid place in some paper box.
