Chorbur



Chorbur is a dish, which is much lighter than the normal Macedonian dishes. As I know, it was made when people were poor, and it was (like is today), eaten for lunch. It looks like a light sauce, but it's actually eaten like a soup. It's extremely easy and fast recipe.
Recipe:
sunflower oil
2 tablespoons of flour
1 tablespoon of paprika
1 tablespoon of vegeta (optional)
cold water (maybe 750 ml, but it really depends of how thick you want the soup)
3-4 eggs (less or more)
white cheese (or some other cheese that won't melt into the soup, but will stay in pieces)
If you like you can add parsley at the end of cooking.
salt and pepper

Take a pan that will be wide, not deep and not too shallow,(at my home we use a little deeper baking pan). In the heated pan add the oil. When the oil is hot, fry the flour until golden. Add the paprika and pour the cold water. NOTE: Also in the other dishes which contains this step, always use cold water, otherwise the flour will become lumps. Now crack the eggs into the soup, don't beat them, just let them whole, and add the cheese. Add salt, pepper, vegeta to taste. When the eggs are boiled by your liking, and the soup is thick enough, the meal is ready. You can add parsley on top. Also you can add some vegetable in it if you like, or other spices, but we eat it like this.
Enjoy this simple and easy meal!

By 'vegeta' you mean this commercial product that is a mix of vegetables and spices right?

Thanks for the recipes! I'm trying Chorbur soon (just waiting for weather to get a little colder).
