The Soup From a Cock

Today we are going to cook chorba or “shurpa” as it is often pronounced in Russia. This soup can be made in different ways and from different meat. What we found on our table today was a cock.

For a kilogram of poultry we need 2,5-3 litres of water. For a poultry of an average size we need one kilogram of onions and about 300 grams of carrots. When we boil it all we add some salt, of course, and remove the scum.

The better your poultry is the less spices you need. The poultry and the potatoes are better be served on a separate dish.

That broth is like a tear! It is wonderful even if eaten separately. Though it may be accompanied by vegetables and thin crispy bread.
