Tips for preparing a chihartmu skillfully

Chihirtma Georgian, despite the seeming complexity and general cooking time, is a dish that can be cooked right right the first time. To do this, just follow a few rules.

  • Do not boil the soup when you have already added an egg-sour dressing, otherwise the yolk will curl up and white flakes will float on the surface of your soup, looking like pieces of fat that will not be quite appetizing.
  • Do not add flour to the boiling broth, but generally to a common pan, otherwise lumps will go. In order to avoid such an outcome, stir the flour in a separate container with a small amount of warm broth.
  • Instead of lemon juice, you can add vinegar.
