Oshi palav

Recommended Posts

TThe king of meals, in Tajik culture



No dish is a better example of this generosity of spirit than oshi palav (pronounced ‘peel-OW’), often anglicised as ‘rice pilaf’. A slow-cooked mix of rice, vegetables and usually meat, oshi palav holds a special place in Tajik culture. It’s the main dish at celebrations and festivals, and ‘osh’, as it often is called, is said to bring families together, secure friendships, solve arguments – and may even have helped end civil war.
