We had quite a cold and rainy day in the capital of Georgia, today; so on my way home, very tired, I was thinking about simple and hot dish, suitable for one gloomy day.
Here is what I have prepared.
First, bunch up these ingredients:
3 – Onions
6 – Mashed tomatoes or 150 gr ready-made tomato puree
4 – Potatoes
1.5 – water
100 gr – Vermicelli
3 cloves – garlic
3 tbs – corn oil
50 gr – coriander
Black pepper/salt to taste
Secondly, heat the saucepan, pour some oil in it and sauté diced onions until golden and soft. Then pour mashed tomatoes and keep stirring with wooden spoon on low heat. After boiling, add diced potatoes and water, stir carefully and bring all these to simmer.
When potatoes are almost ready, add vermicelli in the saucepan, and keep simmering on low heat until potatoes and vermicelli are completely ready.
Finally, dress the soup with mashed garlic, chopped coriander and black pepper and salt to your taste.
I hope tomorrow will be a sunny day, as we are having Wine Festival in Tbilisi, at Open Air Museum of Ethnography; I was there last year and enjoyed brilliant Georgian wine with my friends. Many kinds of homemade and company-made wines are presented at the festival, so the weather is of key importance for tomorrow.
