What They Ate... Central Asian Staples

In Greek the word poluv means a variety of ingredients. Plov is the national Uzbek dish and is eaten at every occasion. This Bukharan version is a simple one consisting of rice, carrots currants and mutton. An additional piece mutton fat is the cherry on top of this festive creation.

Manty is small dumplings filled with chopped mutton and onion. This version also had some corriander seed in the mix.
