From RecipeWiki. This recipe is also categorized as Romanian. Servings are estimated. I have not made this yet, and imagine I might add a bay leaf and some pepper. The original source said to use "some" of the cooking liquid, so that part is a bit unclear, sorry.

Instead of straining the potatoes, I just boiled the without a lid until the potatoes were cooked & the liquid reduced enough. It worked. :) We love this soup! It makes barely enough for 4. The 3 of us each had a large serving with only a few mouthfuls left. It's thick & rich & creamy. And it's easy! Made for Ramadan Tag 2012.
