Algerian Chicken & Chickpea Soup ( Chorba / Shorba)
105 mins (prep 15, cooking 90)
18 ingredients

I love this soup! During Ramadan we have it at least twice a week as everyone likes it - even my little children! I think key to this being so delicious is the preserved really adds so much to it. I also cook this in the pressure cooker: seal chicken add all ingredients except coriander / cilantro & lemon juice. Cook on medium/high for 45 minutes. Add remaining ingredients & simmer with lid off for 1 min. Re-season & serve. This soup freezes really well, bag into portions & freeze. De-frost, re-heat, add a little more cilantro, lemon juice & ras el hanout & it's as good as before!
