The 10 Dishes That Will Make You Fall in Love With Georgian Food 20/03/2018




  • Georgian Shashlyk ( mtsvadi ) Properly made mtsvadi is an extraordinary dish. Preparing it is an entire ritual. Mtsvadi made outdoors, on an open fire is very special and completely different from that made at home using a frying pan or an electric cooker. This is in Georgian genes. We’ve enjoyed it since ancient times and mtsvadi is subconsciously bound to our distant ancestors’ ritual of roasting meat over a fire after a hunt. By the way, it is known that Erekle ll, one of Georgia’s greatest kings, was especially fond of eating mtsvadi in the mountains. Mtsvadi can be made with pork, mutton or veal. Beef should be used only if all other options are unavailable. Marinating the meat in pomegranate juice before roasting makes it especially tender, juicy and delicious

           

  • Khinkali which is a Georgian type of Dumplings, originated in mountainous regions of Mtiuleti, Pshavi and Khevsureti. Later Khinkali varieties spread across the Caucasus region. They are made of mixed pork and beef, sometimes of lamb. Sometimes Khinkali are filled with mushrooms, potatoes, or cheese instead of meat

                     

  • Spinach Pkhali Pkhali is a traditional Georgian dish of chopped and minced vegetables, made of cabbage, eggplant, spinach, beans, beets and combined with ground walnuts, vinegar, onions, garlic, and herbs

                    

  • Mushrooms with Cheese in Clay Pots Soko Kecze translates roughly to “mushrooms in a clay pot.” That is an apt if incomplete description of this dish. While it is generally served in a clay pot, the mushrooms are also topped with melted Georgian cheese. This cheese, combined with the liquid from the mushrooms that pools at the bottom of the pot during cooking makes for a delicious, if highly unhealthy mélange of flavors

                 

  • Shkmeruli Shkmeruli is a chicken dish from the village of Shkmeri, Racha region of Georgia. Chicken in a special spicy sauce with garlic and milk, often cooked on a clay pan

                  

  • Kuchmachi Kuchmachi is made with the heart, liver, kidneys, spleen and lungs of pigs, young beef or chickens. In this recipe we have used pig. Kuchmachi can be made with or without walnuts and is usually garnished with pomegranate seeds

                   

  • Eggplant with nuts Traditional Georgian snack. Prepared from the baked eggplant and spreads from walnuts and spices

                   

  • Lobio (Georgian: ლობიო) is a traditional Georgian dish of various kinds of prepared beans (cooked or stewed), containing coriander, walnuts, garlic and onion

                    

  • Georgian kebab is made with beef or beef mixed with pork unlike the rest of the Caucasus where this dish is mostly made with lamb

                

  • Matsoni The most healthful of all yogurts
