The key to this soup is the bhatsa noodles. They are similar to Italian gnochhi but have a little scoop shape which helps to hold the broth in each one. If you don't want to take the time to make the bhatsa, you can use noodles or pasta instead. You can also make this vegetarian by eliminating the beef and using vegetable bouillon. It can also easily be doubled to serve a family. The total time to make this soup is about an hour. Much of the prep time is done while the beef broth is simmering.
