Siqmon (corn flour soup)
"Siqmon" is one of our very old recipes. It is prepared mostly in Khorezm region. In our folk medicine "Siqmon" is used for the cure of allergy and stomach problems. It contains starch that will help to stomach aches, especially when you have high gastric acidity. Use only good quality corn flour for this recipe.
1 tsp of salt
Corn flour as needed
Water for boiling, about 1 liter
Soup ladle with holes:)
Slightly beat an egg with a spoon, add in 1 tsp of salt and gradually add corn flour until you form soft dough. Cover it. Bring water to boil, add some salt. Now take your ladle and put some dough on it. Press the dough with hands against the holes, the little noodle shape will come out. Do this operation over boiling water as the dough will straightly fall in to it. Finish all the dough. Let it simmer for 3 min more. Take from the heat and serve with 2 tbsp of yogurt to each bowl.
