Don’t you think it’s time to make a heartwarming soup? It’s great to feel the smell of a yummy soup after coming home in a very cold weather. Leaving the freezing cold outside and welcoming a warming and appetizing soup! Who doesn’t want to have this feeling?
If you are following this blog for a long time, you know how we -as Turkish people are crazy about bulgur. If you ever happen to read or hear about Turkish cuisine, you know bulgur has a great role in it. We love to have it in any form. I shared several recipes with bulgur here, and this one will be in the form of a winter soup. We call it topalak corbasi in Turkish. It contains bulgur balls as small as glass marbles, which kids love to play with. These bulgur balls are made from the dough we use in Stuffed Bulgur Kofte(icli kofte) and Balls With Garlic (sarmsakli kofte).
You see we can make at least three different dishes based on the same bulgur dough. This soup is mostly known in the South of Turkey and it has varieties. Some local people add mince into dough and knead them together. Some add meat stock in it to have more flavor. Some make meatballs as small as these bulgur balls and boil them together.
Here is how we make soup of bulgur balls.
