Romanian cuisine was influenced by various cultures, hence some dishes, like ciorba de parisoare, are considered Romanian in origin, but have equivalents in other countries. In Turkey this soup is known as çorba. This name refers to a savoury dish with pork-and-rice meatballs flavoured with paprika and lemon juice.
