Macaron shu'rva (Soup with noodles)
"Macaron shu'rva" can be made using different type of meat-beef, lamb, poultry. As I don't eat red meat, I made it out of chicken:) In original recipe it is done with lamb's tail fat, but I replaced it with corn oil. If you want to make it with lamb's tail fat, then melt about 50 grams of it in preheated thick bottomed pan, take out all of shrunk fat pieces and continue as in recipe below. (Recipe will feed 3-4 people)
6 tbsp of corn oil
2 chicken breasts, cubed
2 onions, peeled and sliced
2 tomatoes, finely chopped or cubed
1 medium sized carrot, peeled and cubed
1 tsp of crushed or grind coriander seeds
3/4 cup of bow shaped (or any other small)noodles
Salt to taste
Fresh chopped coriander or any other your favorite greens
Heat up oil in heavy bottomed pan and put in cubed breast chunks, fry over medium heat, until nice golden color and add in onions, fry until onions are transparent. Now put in carrot cubes and fry for about 5-6 min, then add in tomatoes and coriander. Fry until tomatoes are mushy, bright in color and oil will start to separate. Add in 1 liter of water, bring to boil over high heat. When it comes to boil, reduce the heat on medium and scoop out a little foam, that will float to the surface. Half cover the lid and let it simmer for 30 min. At the end, add in noodles and cook for another 10-15 min or until noodles are finely cooked. Take from heat, add in salt.
Serve in individual bowls, sprinkling freshly chopped greens. You can also add in half a tsp of fresh cream, to make the soup richer in flavor.
