Tanomenon Surva is a soup thickened with paskitan, a drained, fat-free, salty yogurt. Herbs are added for flavor.
Ingredient (for 4-5 people)
1 cup durum wheat (korkoto)
2 cups paskitan (fat-free, drained, salty yogurt)
3 tablespoons cows butter
1.5 litres water
Place the water, the durum wheat and the salt in a pot and bring to the boil. Before removing from the flame, take a tablespoon of the broth. Let the soup cool slightly. In a deep pan, stir the paskitan into the broth that we took aside until it forms a smooth paste, not too thick. Pour the paskitan mix into the soup and stir well. Then, in a frying pan, melt the butter and as soon as it emits a scent, mix in the onions and immediately pour it into the soup. Mix well and serve.
