This is a welcome to Turkish food recipes today .
I would like to show you Lebanese uh which is a yogurt soup and it has a tiny meatballs and uh chickpeas in it .
It is very healthy and delicious recipe .
And so let's get started .
We're gonna make the meatballs for this .
I'm gonna use the food processor .
I have a one medium onion , just chop finely and add uh 250 g ground beef .
It is better if the beef is a little bit fat .
And to that , I added a half teaspoon each salt and ground black pepper , mix everything until it forms to a bowl and our mixture is ready before giving a shape to the meatballs .
I would like to begin to make , make my soup .
So I have a half cup rice and about three cups of water .
I'm going to let it boil until the rice is soft for the meatballs .
The size should be same as the chickpeas because we uh I'm gonna add chickpeas .
So we prefer to make it the same size , it looks better .
And when you eat it is also uh make it nicer in your mouth .
But if you want it to be easy , you can make it a bit bigger .
So as you see , I sprinkled some flowers .
So in order to not to stick each other , then the rice is soft .
I added chickpeas about 34 cup .
I usually keep it in the freezer cooked .
You can use canned chickpeas .
Also added some um salt and more water and let it cook more about five minutes until all the um juices and taste come together .
And before adding the meatballs , we're gonna fry them .
And actually this step gives the most flavor to the soup and it doesn't take too much since the meatballs are very small .
You can fry them by shaking the pan about say three or four minutes and add it to the soup .
The last thing we need is a yogurt which will help to make it more delicious and thicker .
I have a homemade yogurt .
It wasn't too much .
So I added store bought uh some yogurt .
Totally 1.5 cup is enough and uh two tablespoon plain flour and one egg .
I just mix everything on smooth and actually I add a little bit of the soup mixture to make it warm .
Uh Because if you add the cold uh yogurt into a hot soup , it might uh curdle .
So this part is important , just make it warm before you add it whole thing to the soup and uh mix it while adding the yogurt mixture and boil again in a low heat until it is bubbling .
Just before the serving .
We make a butter and mint sauce for the soup .
Just fry some butter .
I use the same pan .
I fried the , the meatballs .
It has all the flavors in it and it dried mint .
About one tablespoon just for 10 to 15 seconds is enough .
Uh You will get all delicious uh flavor from the mint and add at the top of the soup .
After this point , don't mix too much because you want some of the butter and mint sauce on top of your soup when it is served .
So that's it .
I hope you enjoyed watching and try this recipe .

I am really curious about the results .
