Anoushabour -The Official Armenian Christmas Pudding!
9 years ago
In order to help you prepare for Armenian Christmas on January 6th, I want to remind you all to make Anoushabour (literal translation – ‘sweet soup’). I recently received an interesting comment on that same post which follows:

Anahid, an Armenian living in Romania noted that there
are many variations on the preparation of anoushabour, and offered her
Anahid stated: “First my grandmother used to boil the wheat into a thick soup (with sugar, dried fruits like raisins or apricots, vanilla and cinnamon), then put it in bowls. On top she used to add a thick layer of roasted flour, another thick layer of sugar and another one of chopped walnuts, everything sprinkled with cinnamon to taste. She used to make this for New Year’s Eve and Christmas.”
We thank Anahid, and wish everyone …
