  • When the potatoes are half-cooked through, add the fried onions, carrots, and rice (don’t forget to rinse it beforehand), then bring the soup to a boil and carefully throw in the meatballs, one by one.  Now, add salt and pepper, close the lid, and cook on medium high heat until the meatballs rise to the top.
  • Remove from the heat, add chopped dill or parsley, and let the pot stand for about 10 minutes with the lid on.  This will help all of the flavors to come together.
