Stalik Khankishiev: Khan-pilaf

It just so happens that a lot of new readers come to my every post. And, as a rule, these people are new to cooking.
And I know that they will say about this pilaf in advance: “Since there is no meat and carrots here, this is not pilaf, but porridge!”
I don’t even take offense at them, so what if people still don’t know something interesting that can decorate their life and diversify the table?

I just have to tell it all over again every time! For example, to tell that more than half of the world’s pilaf is cooked separately, that is, rice is cooked separately, and everything else is cooked separately. And it all starts each time with boiling water three to four times more in volume than the volume of rice. Continue reading

Delicious Indian Biriani Dish

Some chefs believe that the taste of pilaf is largely dependent on spices. I hope my readers are already convinced that this is not so.
But there is a country where the taste of food and the taste of spices are inseparable concepts. Of course, this is India – a country with a truly great culinary culture!
My story about pilaf would be incomplete if I avoided a dish called biryani.

Chop the chicken into 12-16 pieces. Grate ginger, chop garlic, prepare a set of spices.

If you value your culinary abilities so highly that you are ready to collect a set of spices for biryani yourself, then I don’t know what you can learn from me.
But if you think that grabbing stars from the sky is a silly exercise, then grab a ready-made set of curry spices. The only thing that makes sense to experiment with is the sharpness of the dish. Take sweet paprika and hot ground chili in such proportions that your tongue burns, but you can also feel the taste of paprika – try to find your own individual border of sharpness. Continue reading

Street food in Vienna: what street food to try in the Austrian capital

As in many cities around the world, street food in Vienna is very diverse. These are Asian eateries, kebab stalls and market stalls with truly international cuisine.

But perhaps the most interesting for tourists is the street food that you can try in Austria. In other words, you will buy Chinese noodles in almost any European or Asian capital, but, for example, the famous Viennese sausages are unlikely to be able to eat anywhere else. Or, at least, no one guarantees that they will be as tasty as in Austria.
