home > recipes > meat > persian ashe reshtah
This is a Persian recipe, but is similar to the aush I have had in an Afghan restaurant. 'Ash-e' means soup in Farsi. Persian noodles (Reshteh) are available in Middle Eastern food shops. The author notes that liquid kashke (whey) is svailable, but the quality isn't always good, so she uses sour cream. She also suggests making the soup a day ahead of serving.
