Aush is a Peshawari soup. Aush has home made wheat noodles in it. This soup consists of minced beef, chickpeas and red beans. The flavour gets rich when a scoop of yogurt is added at the top of it with some herbs and spices. It is a special winter treat for Peshawaris and is a nutritional soup to have.



  • 1/2 cup red lentils, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup boiled chickpeas
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup egg noodles
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 potato, diced
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced

  1. In a large pot, combine the rinsed lentils and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the lentils are tender.
