Saudi Soup (Shorba) is a traditional Ramadan dish, served on iftar. The secret of this delicious  recipe is in cooking the soup long enough for the meat to become very tender and the oats to disintegrate somewhat and become very soft so that they melt in your mouth.

Saudi Shorba really has to be the simplest and easiest soup in the world to make. It uses simple ingredients and no blending is required. Soups are gentle on the digestive system and are a good dish to prepare for the breaking of the fast.
