Today’s menu - Shurpa recipe

Olga from Albany

Shurpa (also spelled shourpa, shorwa, shorpo, сhorba, shorba, shorpa, shorpo, sorpa) is a rich and thick soup that will help you enhance your physical power and regain strength if you have lost it, ranks among the foremost first-course dishes of the Uzbek cuisine.

To cook shurpa you will need:
* 0.5 kg of mutton (ribs or fillet) or beef;
* 300 g of onion;
* 200 g of carrot;
* 200 g of capsicum;
* 200 g of tomatoes;
* 200 g of potatoes;
* spices (salt, zira, black pepper and others);
* herbs (dill, parsley, coriander or any other you like or are accustomed to);
* about 2 l of water; shurpa must not be too thin, it is a thick soup.

The ingredients listed above can be found in almost all shurpa recipes, and the only thing that makes all the types of this dish differ from each other is the way it is cooked.
Put large pieces of meat and bones into cold water and boil them for 1.5-2 hours. As the water starts to boil, turn down the fire.
Then take the meat and bones out and separate the meat from the bones. Cut the meat into small even pieces and put them back into the broth.
Now add vegetables cut into large pieces and boil the soup on small fire so that the vegetables can gradually become soft and give the soup all their taste.
Pickle tomatoes may prevent the potatoes from boiling up properly, which is why the tomatoes should be added at the end of the cooking process, together with herbs and spices.
After being finished, the shurpa can be portioned out in traditional bowls (kosa), with a handful of fresh herbs put in each bowl.
Shurpa can also be served separately, that is, broth in large bowls and meat and vegetables in a dish.
Today and tomorrow you can try Shurpa in our bakery.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Devonport & Remuera

"Kia ora - John Orr from New World Devonport here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Chalk Hill’s Grenache Tempranillo 2018. As a fan of Rhone Valley Grenache blends, I really enjoyed this Australian variation because it has the full flavour of dark berry fruits with a nice subtle spiciness making it a real pleasure to drink.” And Vaki Plakic from New World Remuera’s pick is Stoneleigh’s Rapaura Chardonnay. “I’m usually a Hawkes Bay Chardonnay fan, but this year I discovered the Rapaura Chardonnay from Marlborough, which is rich in fruit flavour and well balanced. Plus, it’s this year’s Award’s Champion Chardonnay, so you can’t go wrong with this wine!”
