Chicken Broth (Soups)

"Becsinyátt" soup (meaning "made in" broth, pronounced in the local dialect) used to be made from young pigeons or chicken. Very "thin roux" is made for it to prevent being too thick. Meat is cleaned and cooked with vegetables in the soup in one piece; it is only cut apart for family members when served. Noodles are also made for it or sometimes it is cooked with dumplings. "Becsinyátt" soup was regularly made for ill family members.
