Here is how my Grandma and mum do it:
a- the Yoghurt must be from goat milk,
b- No need for starch with goat milk
c- we don't have it with rice.
d- we don't bake the dumpling
e- we use mint instead of coriander
On the cooking steps:
6: we don't bake the dumpling
7: goat milk yogurt should not be strained, we just boil the yogurt, and then add as much water and boil the mix.
8: should be done in parallel with 7, we fry the garlic and dried mint and then add to the boiling water and yoghurt mix after that starts boiling.
9: add the dumpling to the mix, and wait until it's boiling, and leave it boiling for 15 mins.
10: serve as a dumpling soupe, (no rice etc).
pickled olives are nice on the side.
