    Sarah Boudjema's Note:

    This is absolutely my favourite Algerian dish (good thing to as we eat this for virtually every day for a month each year). Chorba Frik served with Borek is commonly eaten during Ramadan after breaking the fast with three dates and fermented milk but i can eat this frequently all year round! Normally Chorba contains diced Lamb but considering my husbands cholesterol i like to omit it. Frik is known as crushed wheat or Green wheat and can be hard to find if you dont have access to an Algerian butcher/shop. Some branches of Tesco’s sell it (East End Crushed Wheat) , i believe it’s in the Indian/Ethnic section.

      I made this for PAC 2012. I really enjoyed this dish a lot and will make it again. I might try adding lamb as the other reviewer suggested. Thanks for posting!

      I love this soup too- I do the same recipe, except normally chorba is made with chunks of lamb (with the bone for flavor) but this is a good vegetarian variation since the recipe is using stock
