This is the first association with the cuisine of Uzbekistan, a real visiting card of the country and even an intangible heritage taken under the protection of UNESCO. Local pilaf is a must-try. It is curious that in Samarkand, Bukhara, Tashkent and several other cities, the recipes and cooking methods are different - the dishes turn out to be slightly different. In Uzbek pilaf, all products are cooked together in one cauldron. In the composition of rice (sometimes with chickpeas, mash or wheat), lamb, onions and carrots, fried in hot oil or fat tail fat, a mixture of spices. Pilaf in Uzbekistan is usually served on a large platter for several people.

If you want to cook real Uzbek pilaf in your kitchen, you can bring home a "correct" cauldron, and for serving - a flat wide plate. The dish is often served with guraob grape sauce. It, along with all the necessary spices in Uzbekistan, can be bought at bazaars.


A very satisfying, simple composition, but incredibly tasty dish. Lagman in Uzbekistan is a must-eat for every tourist. It is made from lamb and vegetables with handmade noodles. In Uzbekistan, you can try 2 types of dishes: chuzma-lagman (stretching) and kesma-lagman (cut). It is more interesting to order the first option, then there will be a chance to watch the process of drawing noodles - this is a whole art. Each region has its own subtleties of cooking. Someone serves lagman as thick as a stew, someone - liquid, almost like soup. Either way, the taste remains delicious.

To make lagman at home, it is worth bringing cumin from Uzbekistan, as well as red pepper for the yagmuch seasoning (a mixture of pepper and garlic, poured with hot oil). Bazaars often sell ready-made noodles for lagman - if you go nearby, you can buy it with you.


In Uzbekistan, manti is steamed. If the sculpting is hand-made, as a rule, they will be fastened crosswise, with an envelope. The dough is very thin and tender. The Uzbeks like to cook the filling from mutton, sometimes from other types of meat, to which fat tail fat or pumpkin is often added. Vegetarians in Uzbekistan also have something to try - manti with pumpkin, potatoes or other vegetables. The dish is usually served with katyk (a fermented milk product resembling kefir) or fried onions.

If you are very fond of manti, buy a mantis for home - a special device in which Uzbeks cook manti.


Uzbek-style roast will definitely appeal to lovers of meat cuisine. The dish is prepared from meat filled with steep broth or melted fat tail fat. Steamed vegetables are laid on it in layers: cabbage, potatoes, flour, peppers, eggplants, carrots and others. There are always a lot of them, everything is cut into large pieces. The mixture is generously flavored with aromatic spices, and then simmered for a long time in a cauldron over low heat, so that the meat is thoroughly saturated with vegetable juices. The result is an incredibly tender dish that almost melts in your mouth.

Go to the bazaar in Uzbekistan to buy cumin, coriander, paprika, hot pepper. This mixture will come in handy to make your own smoke.
