Hashlama from mutton in Turkish. Step-by-step recipe

  1. Khashlama from lamb at home is prepared very simply. Before you start cooking hashlama, take chickpeas and fill it with water, so that it is infused.
  2. After that, put the lamb in a saucepan and pour it with water: approximately, in the proportion of 1 to 3.
  3. We put it on an average fire, cover it with a lid and bring it to a boil. After that, remove the formed foam and continue to cook for another three hours to get a rich rich soup.
  4. At the end of this time, pour the chickpea into the pan and mix it, so that it does not start to burn. Cook it almost until ready.
  5. At this time, we begin to work with carrots. We clean it from the peel, thoroughly rinse and cut into large circles: about 1.5 centimeters wide. Pour the carrots into the broth and mix.
  6. Now we clean potatoes, we wash it. After cutting into large pieces: if the potato is medium in size, then divide it into 4 parts. Then we send after carrots and mix.
  7. We take the onion, we clean it. If you do not like it much, cut it in half, throw it into the water, cook it and take it out neatly. Thus, hashlama will receive the necessary taste and aroma. Or do it as I do: just slice the bulb in small pieces and send it to the broth. It is strongly boiled, therefore it is not strongly felt.
  8. After that, cook for another half an hour, and add salt to the broth. Then season everything with black ground pepper and lightly mix.
  9. Add a few leaves of laurel leaves, cook a few more minutes. Vegetables according to the recipe of hashlama from lamb meat should not just boil, but be boiled and give a certain color and turbidity to the broth.
  10. Khashlama is ready: we put it in bowls and serve it on the table.
