“I found this recipe in my grandmother�s notebook, not computer but real handwrite booklet. It took me some time to decipher her handwriting but the result is here. I cooked the soup few days ago and it is good. You must be careful with lemon, do not put it too much. It is very light soup with slightly sour taste.”
