  1. Shorba "Khartoem" (lamb soup)


DutchSHORBA "KHARTOEM" (Lambsoup)

This is an interesting soup.
It is a "half-full" soup with a glimmer of peanut butter and lemon.
The Sudanese do usually also rice in this soup, but can be omitted, because through the main course even rice is used.

Maybe 3 cloves garlic are something too much, so start with one clove and then test the soup, when it cooks, to see whether you want to have more garlic.
