Have finally perfected this soup, so a note on what I did this time so I can do it again.

Make stock. Note to self, must try it with beef. I like lamb though.

Steep 8odd dried apricots/ prunes in a mug of boiling water.

Add tin of tomatoes to stock. Do not add tomato paste - it's too much.

Add the prune compot. Chop and add the prunes.

Add a teaspoon each of ground fenugeek and coriander seeds. Add two tspns of chilli/ cayenne pepper. Add 3 or 4 teaspoons of paprika. Add a generous teaspoon of that weird Russo-Georgian spice mix whose name escapes me.

Add fresh mint, fresh tarragon and fresh coriander leaves.

Add walnuts.

Add juice of 1 lime or half a lemon.

Simmer of a bit, let's say 30 mins.

Add half a mug of rice. When the rice is cooked it's ready.

*Gives Icy a Look* Well, you could reduce the chilli or paprika or other spices if you like, but I like it like this.
