Tuy shurva (Wedding soup)

Hi everyone!
I was looking through my photos today and I found this recipe that was waiting to be posted in here:)I tried this soup for the first time in an Uzbek wedding. I liked it so much that I tried to replicate it at home for my dear ones. I am not sure about the name of the soup, because nobody knew when I asked:) so I decided to name it as "Wedding soup".  So here are the ingredients you will need to feed about 4-5 people:
200 grams of minced meat (beef or lamb)
30 grams of melted butter
1/2 cups of short grain rice
One small egg
80 ml of vegetable oil
1 big onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 medium sized carrot, peeled and cubed
1 small capsicum, cubed
1 big tomato, finely chopped
4-5 quail eggs, cooked in water for 5 min and shelled
Salt, pepper (just a pinch) and cumin seeds (1/2 tsp) to taste
Sour cream for serving
Mix minced meat, rice, melted butter, salt, pepper and cumin seeds and small egg all together. Shape up small oval shaped chunks with your hands. (If meat tends to stick on your hand, just wet your palms with cold water). Set aside.
Heat up oil and  fry onion over medium heat, until golden in color. Add in capsicum and carrots, continue to fry until carrots are half done. Add in tomato, fry until oil will starts to separate out. Pour in 1.2 liters of water and bring to boil over high heat. When it starts to boil, lower the heat and scoop out a little foam. Put in meat balls and cook until rice is done (Scoop out any foam that will float on the surface). At the end, add in salt and boiled quail eggs and cook for about 5 min. Serve as hot with a teaspoon of sour cream on top.
Main thing - Enjoy!
Yoqimli ishtaha!!!
