My husband reminded me we haven't had yougurt soup in a while. That reminded me of that refreshingly sour taste of yougurt soup and I decided to cook it today. Since I didn't cook it in a while I didn't remember how to make it so I decided use this recipe rather that searching for my original recipe book. I'm terribly sorry but it did't turn out very good, I had to throw it away. I think this recipe has too much flour in it. This soup cooked following this recipe tastes and smells like raw dough rather than yougurt soup. I found my original recipe it requires only 3 tbs of flour and also flour is browned in a little butter to give it a slightly toasty flavor. Sorry I would have prefered to write a 5 star review but hopefully next time. Also I would be willing to share my original recipe if anybody is interested.
