This looks great, but it must be pretty spicy. I did a beef stew today that I blogged about it turned out great. Perfect time for soup in Turkey!

I wanted to make this soup today however I couldnt adjust a nice taste, it was too salty later too bland so my imagination went on and.. I added pepper cut in cubes( I cant get a pepper paste), garlic, curry spice and cloves it turned out Indiansome but Im happy with my result:)

It's again me, I forgot to ask an important question, does turkce cuisine use curry spice at all?or is it entirely omitted?

The key ingredient is the red pepper paste in this soup. Without it the soup should be very bland:)
But you created the new taste for the soup...good for you:)
Curry is not our favorite spice but we use it:)
