How to cook shorba freak step by step with photos

I'm getting ahead of myself. In the original, I used a groat called freak, which is young wheat roasted and shredded, but once I experimented with barley groats as well, no difference in taste. The difference is... fricassee cooks for 1-2 hours, and barley quickly, but foams and burns... so you have to watch out... Green in the teaspoon is garlic (I have a blank in the jars in the fridge)

Chop the vegetables with a coarse grater. In tomatoes the skin comes off well, we do not need it, just showed)))) You can grind with a blender, it's easier for me "with my grandfather's" method, less washing.))

In a saucepan, heat the oil and over high heat for about 3-4 minutes add the ingredients one by one (fry), I am guided by the smell... I smell roasted carrots, it's time to add zucchini, then potatoes, then onions and garlic together

Now add the tomato and let it stew for a while... In the meantime, in a bowl mix tomato paste, salt, sugar, black pepper, cumin, harissa (something burning not much), add water to the top, mash and pour into the pan with the vegetables, stew for 5 minutes... In the meantime, beat an egg to the stuffing, salt, pepper, stir and make meatballs (I have the size of a teaspoon). I took a picture of the fricassee and the yakka... The left is the fricassee, the right is the yak... Add 2-2,5 l of water to a pot, bring to the boil, collect buzz, add grits and meatballs, leave on low heat to simmer until the grits are ready

Here in this photo you can see the consistency of our soup... Cilantro is a must for sorba freak, you can add celery greens too, yum-yum. And olives and lemon are optional... Bon appetit, bon appetit, bon appetit!!!!
