|fit for a sultan|
Once upon a time many centuries ago, there was a Sultan who was a guest at a poor peasant’s house. There was no food to offer him as such and this was the only dish the poor peasant wife could quickly prepare. She said this is ‘dar hane’ soup, meaning this is the soup of a ‘poor house’ and thus over time the word evolved into tarhana.
