Super tasty for a California winter - I've made it three times since you posted it. As the previous comment mentioned, the soup has its way of disappearing.

Dear Binur

Elinize saglik. I usually make mercimek corbasi (although in a different version of your recipe), but went out on a lim today and made a half portion of mercimek corbasi and the potato soup. My husband absolutely loved the potato soup... so maybe he found a new favorite :-)

This is really a delicious and nutritious soup. I also added some peas and corn. Great on winter nights.

Thank you for your wonderful recipes. I try my hand at turkish cooking 60% of the time now. I find that the turkish cuisine consists of a lot of healthy foods, but some also fattening, so I try to stick with the not so fattening varieties.
I recently was in Turkey and stayed for 10 days with a turkish family. They made a different potatoe soup. It was cubed potatoes in a very peppery red soup base. I assume that the soup base was hot red pepper paste, and onions were finely sliced into that, maybe also some tomato paste was added, and cubed potatoes. Do you know of this soup? Do you know a recipe for it?
