Turkish Dishes: Tarhana Soup

Tarhana soup is probably the most famous soup in Turkish homes. This soup is usually prepared in summer so it can be consumed during winter.  Tarhana is made with yogurt,onion, tomato, red pepper, salt and parsley,flour. All these ingredients are mixed with instant maya then ,with clean cloth , the mixture is covered and allowed to settle until the mixture dries. The dried mixture made powder hand-mad. It is then later stored in glass vase for the winter.

During our vacation in Instanbul, I managed to get Tarhana powder from my mom who prepared the powder last summer.
