Tovuqli loviya shorva (Chicken and kidney bean soup)

I posted recipe of fried "Loviya shorva" earlier, and this is another type of soup which is prepared with kidney beans. It is much more healthier and low fat, then the first recipe, because we don't need to use any oil here. It is good for diabetics and for people who want to eat healthy food.
Half of big chicken
2 onions, peeled, one sliced, one whole
1 capsicum, cut in thin strips
1 turnip, quartered
2 medium sized tomatoes, blend in food processor or chopped well
1 carrot,peeled and sliced
200 gr of kidney beans, boiled separately until they are soft and ready
2-3 bay leaves
Some chopped fresh coriander or dill
Salt to taste
Put chicken in cold water enough to cover it for 3 inches, it is better to take deep pan, I usually pour about 2.5 liters of water. Let water to boil and scoop out all the foam, reduce the heat, half cover the lid and let it simmer for 1 hour. After add in carrot, blended tomato, capsicum, onion and turnip and again let the soup boil and then scoop out small red foam that will come out, and again reduce the heat, half cover the lid and let it simmer for 40 min, then add in ready kidney beans (pour out all the water that kidney beans been boiled, as it is dark in color and it will not look good in the soup), also add bay leaves and let the soup simmer for 10 min, then add in salt, you can also add some of your favorite spices, but I usually don't. Check for saltiness, now you can serve the soup sprinkling with chopped coriander and of course enjoy it:)
Yoqimli ishtaha!!!
