Tarhana soup mix is dried food based on a fermented mixture of grain and yogurt or fermented milk, usually made into a thick soup with water, stock, or milk.
PAY ATTENTION WHEN COOKING
Make sure you add the soup mix in the cold water and stir a lot, with a ood spoon or even a whisker so it does not stick the bottom of your pot
If you do not stir it well from the start it might also clump, well stirring means few stirs every other 5 minutes while keeping the heat low
- It is found in the cuisines of Southeast Europe and the Middle East. Dry tarhana has a texture of coarse, uneven crumbs, and it is usually made into a thick soup with water, stock, or milk. As it is both acidic and low in moisture, the milk proteins keep for long periods.
- Tarhana is very similar to some kinds of kashk.
