This week, we cooked food from Kazakhstan. Their national dish was Beshbarmak, which is boiled meat on top of dough. We did not find it too appetizing and we had cooked a lot of boiled meat in the past so we decided to choose two other dishes:
- Lamb pilaf – a rice dish common in many countries. Looking at youtube videos, we were surprised of how much oil you had to add. But, it tasted great in the end as the rice absorbed the oil. 9/10. We followed the Uzbek recipe as I could not find a Kazakh equivalent.
- Baursak – fried dough. We had eaten already similar things in the past, but this recipe we followed was more “bread-y”. 5/10.
