The name of the
soup comes from the way of preparing the noodle by rubbing the dough. "Oğmaç"
means "Rubbed" between palms. It is prepared in Denizli, Burdur, Kütahya, Manisa
and Bolu provinces. In Burdur, it is called "Ömek soup" and tomato paste is
combined with melted butter and stirred in before removing from heat. In Manisa
and Kütahya provinces crushed mint is used instead of tomato paste.
