Great holmertz 2022-01-08 0:29

Hello Malgo,
I have obviously not eaten plov, but it is just as obviously the same word as 'pilaf', so I have obviously eaten similar dishes in other countries, like Iran or Afghanistan. It also looks very much the same as an Indian biriyani. This looks tasty, but I feel than Ian's wife was right that it's too fat. The colours make it ideal for photos, but what are those white things? Mushrooms?
Best regards,

Talking To holmertz: White things

Hi Gert,

Thank you for the critique. Indeed, it can be too fat , but plov I ate in Tashkent was not. The white things are eggs - bigger chicken eggs, smaller - quail ones.

Have a nice day

Hi Malgo and Gert,

Because of the different sizes of the white stuff, I would have expected it to be cheese and not eggs.
The combination of chicken and quail eggs, of course, means the difference in size.
I suppose cheese is not used very often in Central Asian cuisines.

It does look appetizing.

Kind regards,
