Today in a week I will be at the carnival in my home town Basel.
To put myself in carnival mood I cooked one of the typical carnival dishes today: Basler Mählsuppe, i.e. flour soup.
The recipe I am using is from Betty Bossi.
First you have to roast 5 tablespoons of flour in a deep pan or pot over medium heat.
You have to stir continuosly and be careful not to burn the flour. It is ready when it has turned a nice golden brown. If you let it get too dark the soup will taste bitter. Set the roasted flour aside to cool.
I am looking forward to Morgestraich!
