Ingredients

    1 lb. lamb, cut into small cubes
    1 teaspoon turmeric
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ginger
    2 Tablespoons butter
    3/4 cup chopped celery and leaves
    2 onions, chopped
    1/2 cup parsley and cilantro, chopped
    1 2-lb. can of tomatoes, chopped

    1 cup chickpeas (canned are fine)
    1/4 cup fine soup noodles
    2 eggs, beaten with the juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

makes 8 1-cup servings

Put the lamb, spices, butter, celery, onion, and parsley/cilantro in a large soup pot and stir over a low heat for 5 minutes. Add the tomato pieces, and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes. Salt lightly.
Add the juice from the tomatoes, 7 cups of water, and the lentils. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, partially cover, and simmer for 2 hours.

When ready to serve, add the chickpeas and noodles and cook for 5 minutes. Then, with the soup at a steady simmer, stir the lemony eggs into the stock with a long wooden spoon. Continue stirring slowly, to create long egg strands and to thicken the soup. Season to taste. Serve with lemon wedges.
