Shurba Libiyyah / Arabiyyah (traditional Lamb Soup)

salaam

This is the soup that we have almost daily in Ramadan and at other times of the year too. It is usually made with lamb  but can also be made with chicken or fish.

a-cooking-pot Shurba Libiyyah / Arabiyyah (traditional Lamb Soup) a-cooking-pot



Ingredients:

1/2 kilo / 1lb lean lamb cut into 1-2 cm pieces (some bones from the meat to add flavour if available). More or less meat can be used according to number of servings needed.
1 onion (chopped finely)
2 ripe tomatoes (chopped or blended)
1-2 tablespoons of tomato paste or puree (some can be quite concentrated so use less)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 - 1 teaspoon hararaat/ garam masala
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
small sprinkling of ground cinnamon
1-2 handfuls of pasta for soups (stelline / stars or birds' tongues)
a handful chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
1 teaspoon dried ground mint leaves

In a saucepan fry the onion till soft then add the meat and continue to fry until brown.
Add the spices, salt, tomatoes, tomato paste and plenty of water to cover ( 1.5 litres approx). Cover and cook for approx 1 hour or until meat is almost cooked then add the pasta shapes and chopped coriander. Add more water and stir throughout the cooking. Continue to simmer until the pasta is cooked. Just before serving add the dried mint. Have some lemon wedges to squeeze into the soup if desired after serving.

Serve with some nice hot crusty bread as a first course.  sHa_shakeshout  

Let me know what you think of this recipe inshaAllah.

I have to ask you sis Aisha, do you ever or do you know others who add orange flower water into their Libyan shorba?? I have had shorba at Libyan sisters' houses many times before so I was really shocked when I became friends with another sister who routinely adds OFW to her shorba. Maybe this is regional...

Sorry for the late reply sister. No I have never heard of this. Maybe, as you say, it could be regional.

Wa feeki barakAllah dear sister flower3 I am sure that you won't be dissappointed inshaAllah a-red-pot
My mum-in-law makes a lower fat version using a mixture of lamb and steak mashaAllah. She prepares enough for several days, freezing the ready cut portions of meat. Also she freezes parsley, ready-chopped. BarakAllahu feeha mashaAnim
