Azerbaijani Food: 5 Must-Try Dishes

more than a year ago


Dolma is present in many Middle-eastern and Balkan cultures, and it has different names. It's basically cooked rice, mixed with minced lamb and different herbs, then wrapped into cabbage or vine leaves. The result - tasty bites of magic.


Dovga is a type of fresh cold soup which will sound strange at first and which will become your favouite later. It's made of yoghurt, rice, chickpeas, and herbs. It's the finest addition t every other meal, especially if well-cooled in the hot summer.


We know and respect the taste of dough and bread lovers. This one is especiall for them - a stuffed salty pancake with cheese, spinach or chopped lamb. Different chefs have different options for that meal, but we just can't imagine a bad one.


Ancient Azeri didn't need nutritionists to know that nuts, dried fruit, herbs and clean meat are a natural doping for the body and the brain. Lavangi is baked chicken or fish, stuffed with walnuts, raisins, onions and herbs. Legend says that many tourists stayin Azerbaijan just because they can't let go of Lavangi.


Lovers of sweet things are people too, and we are tolerant enough to provide them with that precious piece of advice. Try Pakhlava (or Baklava). It's an extremely sweet (literally) combination of dough, nuts and sweet syrup. Another hint - order one portion per two people in case you'd like to avoid diabetes or something.
