i also thought it was a little bit too sour. I find that the lemon in the US is different than the lemon in Turkiye. In the US it is more i just added a couple of drops of milk ! problem solved :)

Is it safe to use raw egg in the soup?in my country we dont have egg sauces, so is the egg going to be cooked enough?I want to try this soup very much.Greetings,Lehce.

Hi Lehce,
Yes, it is safe:) All the ingredients are raw but at the end all of them are cooked enough:)
Take care,
