Reader, Bob, is looking for a recipe his maternal grandmother used to make called ‘chamanichur’. When he presented his request, I confessed I didn’t know a recipe by that name. What sounded logical to me was that chamanichur might be a soup with chaman in it – chaman, the seasoning; ‘chur’, meaning water. My cookbooks and research revealed nothing.
“These (Armenian Kitchen) recipes remind me of my Armenian mom’s family. My grandmother, who was from Kayseri, used to cook ‘chamanichur’, do you have this recipe? I would love to find it but no success so far.”
Well, folks, that’s all I have for you. If you could please put on your thinking caps, Bob – and I – would appreciate any suggestions for chamanichur. Thanks!
