Uzbek Soup – Mastava (Rice and meat soup)
Simply comforting and filling soup, perfect on these fall and winter season. In Uzbekistan, they call this soup – Mastava. The rice and meat soup is a whole meal by its own. Super easy to prepare, very delicious and nutritious too. You have carbs from rice, protein from meat and all other nutrients from vegetables.
The temperature is coming down here and we are all set to welcome another winter again Insha Allah! Hot and comforting soup is all we want for dinner now a days! And when I make Mastava, I don’t need to think about making anything side with it. And best thing about this soup is you throw in all the ingredients and your are done!!!! Yes, you heard it right! Just half an hour of cooking time is required. Then who wouldn’t want to make this soup – huh?! All ladies would be happy to find such recipes.
My Uzbek friend shared this recipe with me. When we went to mountain during late spring with them, had this soup very first time from there. It was very light, comforting at the same time very flavorful as well. And I asked her for the recipe and tried it. I will definitely share some more Uzbek special recipes soon, which is on the pipe line 🙂 .
I hope you would enjoy this soup as much as we do.
