Winter Rice Soup (Gêrmiya Şîr)

As everyone has noticed, winter is here early this year. For those of you who, after dragging yourselves home from a tiring days work, would like to be greeted with the aroma of a warm, homemade soup, I submit this recipe. 

  •  2 cups milk (400 ml)
  • 1/2 cup white rice (100g)
  • 5 cups water (1litre)
  • 1 level tsp salt
    1. Wash and drain the rice.
    2. Place the water in a deep pot, add the salt and rice, and cook on a high flame for 25 minutes. To prevent the pot from overflowing, leave the lid off or slightly ajar.
    3. When the rice is cooked, add the milk and simmer another 10 minutes over a medium heat.
    Bon Appetit! Noşi Can Be!


  1. I like this one because it's so simple and it warms you up on a cold or rainy night--a major comfort food!
