I don't know what the real name for this soup is, it was passed on to me by my mother who learned it from my Lebanese grandfather on my dad's side. It is made with Kafta; we used to purchase it at a Lebanese store, but here is a recipe to make your own: Kafta (Meatball Shish Kabobs) Kafta (Meatball Shish Kabobs). For the clarified butter you may use your own, but this how I make it-- Rendered/Clarified Butter (Samneh) Middle East, Palestine Rendered/Clarified Butter (Samneh) Middle East, Palestine. The soup is rich and fulfilling.
