Where is the best plov in Uzbekistan?

Post by steven »

The debate has raged for centuries.

For my part, the best plov I have had so far in Uzbekistan was in a pretty grimey oshxana on the bazaar in Chust, northern Fergana Valley. Not a lot of grease, real "lazer" rice, chickpeas, raisins, and the typically Uzbek yellow carrot. Good times :)

What's your favourite?

My best plov was in Feghana as well! Lazer rice, dolma, quail eggs - yummy!

Not a lot of grease would be incompatible with local ideas of what good plov is. I believe it's usually thought that the best plov should leave oil dripping from your elbow.

I suspect the best plov is probably served in Moscow, however.

Are there any traditional recipes Uzbek pilaf? I'd like to try to make my own.
