Nuhot sho'rva (Soup with yellow peas)

"Nuhot sho'rva" is made from yellow peas. Vegetarians can cook it without meat, as it is good source of protein. Use fresh meat, preferable meat with some bones, it will give special flavor and helps this soup to be thicker. I like it to make this soup thick, but if you like making it thinner then add not 140 grams but 100 grams of peas.
60 gr of vegetable oil or 50 gr of lamb's tail fat
350 gr of meat
2 onions, peeled and sliced
1 carrot, peeled and cubed
1 small capsicum, seeded and cubed
1 turnip peeled and cubed (optional)
2 medium sized tomatoes, cubed well
140 grams of peas, washed well
1.5 liters of water
Salt to taste
1 tbsp of coriander
1 tsp of cumin seeds
Fresh coriander chopped
Heat oil well and brown meat on a high heat. Put in onions,spices and fry until onions are transparent and add in carrot and capsicum. Fry constantly stirring until carrots are half done. Add in tomato and turnip. Fry until oil starts to separate out. Add in peas and immediately add in water. Bring to boil, scoop out little foam and lower the heat. Half cover the lid and simmer until peas are soft. At the end add in salt. Serve in individual bowls sprinkling some coriander.
Yoqimli ishtaha!!!
