  • Vegetable oil – 3-4 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper – to taste

  1. In a 2-liter saucepan, pour the chicken drumsticks with water and put them on fire. Bring to a boil and remove the foam. Peel the onions and carrots. Add one onion and half a carrot to the pot. Cook the broth for 30 minutes.
  2. While the broth is cooking, finely chop the second onion and the remaining half of the carrots.
  3. Make cruciform cuts on the tomatoes and fill them with hot water for two minutes. Then put it in cold water and remove the skin. Cut the tomato pulp into cubes.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add onions and carrots and fry for about 5-7 minutes. Add the tomatoes and fry everything together for another 5 minutes.
  5. Take the boiled onion and carrot out of the broth. Peel the potatoes. Leave one potato intact, cut the rest into cubes. Add a whole potato to the stockpot; we will use the chopped potatoes later.
  6. Cut the sorrel into strips. Peel the garlic. Chop the green onion feathers, parsley, and garlic cloves.
  7. As soon as the whole potato is cooked, take it out of the broth and put it in a pan with the fried vegetables, mash it with a wooden spatula, this will make the borscht thicker and more saturated. Put chopped potatoes in a saucepan with broth, salt and cook for 7-10 minutes.
