One of my favorite soups that my mom used to make for us. Super delicious, healthy and easy to make.

Make sure you use good Greek yoghurt with less amount of water

Turkish Yoghurt Soup with Mint Butter (Yayla Corbasi)


6 cups of water you can use meat, vegetable or plain water

1/2 cup rice washed and drained

2 tsp salt

2 cups plain Greek Yoghurt

1 egg yolk

1/2 cup milk (optional)

2 tbsp unsalted butter

1 tbsp dry mint

1 tsp red pepper flakes optional


Wash rice with warm water and drain

Mix rice, water and salt in a pot and cook it on medium heat until rice is cooked through

Mix yoghurt, egg yolk, flour and milk (if you are using)in a bow. Mix very well.

After rice is done, start to add some of the warm water to the yoghurt mix. Start very slowly to make sure you do not heat yoghurt mix to quickly.
