Polish Milk Soup

14 Nov 2006 #1
How about a polish soup that was white and made from milk? No meat or veggies of any kind. Anybody know that one? My Grandmother used to make it and haven't had it in years.

Very popular soup in Poland, called Zupa Mleczna.

2.5 liter milk
1 tablespoon butter
10 dg flour
pinch of salt
about 2 tablespoons sugar

Boil milk, add salt and sugar. Slowly mix in flour, stirring the whole time. Boil again on small heat and add butter.

Thanks for the recipe. One question what's dg mean. I never heard that term before. Also have you heard of a recipe that has potato noodles, bacon and onions in it and it's kind of like a real thick soup? Another one my grandmother used to make.

dg means deco gram, deco from greek meaning 10, so
going back to (x grade math calss?), 1 kilogram = 100 dg = 1000g
or 10dg = 100g

oh i love that soup , all milk soups for that matter.
A variation to the above recipe, is to add an egg, for a more rich in taste and color lumps of

also does anyone also like a rice milk soup , made with italian (calrose) rice???

I was looking for a milk soup recipe that my mother used to make, but it had egg drop noodles in it. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

I tkink You're talking about milk soup called 'lane kluski'.
1 egg
flour (not sure how many spoons)
You need to mix egg, flour and water - stir it very well.
Add it slowly to boiling milk and keep it boiling for few minutes.
Unfortunately I'm not sure about proportions - You need to try few times to get perfekt
' lane kluski '. Smacznego

WE have a very large family POLISH and GERMAN heritage. In order to strech out the food dollars when we were growing up we had milk soup often,in fact i would swear we had a recipe for any kind of soup! Here is how we make it even today.

1 gallon whole milk
1 gallon water
salt to taste
approx 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup uncooked white rice
any size uncoked noodles 12 to 16 oz bag
good heavy soup pot and top
heavy woodwn spoon

stove heat is on high
mix and boil both water and milk until thick and creamy stirring constantly making certain bottom of the pot doesn't burn, start off with the top on the pot.later when the milk is boiling you can take the top off of the pot ,There appears a thick layer on the top of the soup and milk also looks thicker, at this time make sure the heat is on high and add the rice, let that cook until 3/4 done then add noodles,then you can reduce the heat to let the rice and noodles continue to cook fully. soup is done and ready to eat!

I like to stay very close to the stove area when this is cooking, try not to let the soup boil over onto the stove , this may sound like alot of work but it is not! well worth the minimal effort to cook!

Understand when I make this soup today it is made in a very large quanity, will last for several days in the refridge (if not eaten before)! Is great to eat when you are sick or healthy! HAPPY STIRRING!

WHOA! My grandma makes "milk soup," but I always thought it was just something weird that only her family did! She has 100% Polish blood, but it was her grandparents who were born in Poland and immigrated to the USA.

My gram's recipe is almost exactly what krysia describes, but it's got an extra step. She heats up the milk in a big pot, thickens it with flour, and adds a bit of sugar and pepper. Then, she melts butter in a pan and fries slices of bread in the butter until it's lightly toasted. The butter is dumped into the soup, and the toast is pulled into bite-sized pieces and put into the soup.

My Busia used to make a soup similar to this only she used a herb that grew in her yard. It look like a spinich leaf. My Mom said the name of the herb was either chav or chev. Does anyone know of any type of herb like that?

We would like to recreae the soup receipe if we can.
Thanks Kurlowski

It's Szczaw = Sorrel
Personally I hate milk soups, but Sorrel Soup is not bad.

I just got done talking to my Mom and that's it. Thanks so much. My Busia has been gone for many years, but just recently we went to Olive Garden to have lunch. On the menu they have this Zupa soup. It's white soup with pototaes and sausages. It reminded me so much of the soup Busis used to make that I had to look into it. All my Mom could remember was the look of the herb and the name of either chav or chev.

How exciting this is. Now I just need to find the receipe.
Thanks again for first piece of my puzzle.

Milk soups are an excellent way to use up the preceding day's leftover noodles or any kind of pasta, cooked rice, buckwheat or barley groats.

To 2 pint hot milk add 1-3 cups of any of the above, and let your diners either salt or sweeten it to taste. A pat of butter may be added.

If there's nothing leftover from the day before, into the boiling milk pour egg-batter in a thin strema to make lane kluski: 1 egg beaten with a heaped tablespoon flour a pinch of salt and just enough liquid (boiling water or milk) to get a nice pourable batter. Cook several minutes and serve as above.

Well I live in the US and have never heard this on this side of th epond or any other for that matter. The only soup I know of that you drop eggs into is eggdrop soup. Chicken broth brought to a boil and eggs beatten then stirred into. Yum. I think it might be taken from the Chinese cuisine.

My grandmother made a soup she called rumbulcha which she used equal parts flour and egg plus salt and pepper to make a dumpling and dropped it in hot milk.

We always were given this when we were sick, but liked it so much we always asked for I still like this soup.
I am of german nowegian desent, I guess this must be a universal recipe

Milk soup? Noting easier :)

You need milk, eggs, flour and salt (you can also add sugar at the end if you want)

boil milk
mix 2-3 eggs (I prefer 3), add salt (not so much) and flour (about 3 spoons?)
smooth cannot be so thick! and cannot be so watery
if it's so thick - add a little bit of milk (or water but milk is better)
if it's so watery - add more flour

When milk start to boil add the smooth (stirring all time)
pull pot off te burner
wait a minute until the soup thicken
you can add sugar if you want :)

that's traditional polish milk soup :)

sorry for my mistakes...

Hello, Mom used to make what we called milk rice soup. We would play in the snow and cold of northern michigan all day and then come in to supper. Hot milk rice soup with spaetzle or drop noodles and a touch of cinnamon. Sweet dreams.
