Zogora non (Corn flour bread)

"Zogora non" is often cooked in villages. It is very delicate, crumbly and tasty bread. It goes very good with "Bolqaymoq". Be careful when you will take your "shirmoy non"s out from the oven, they crumble easily. Use low sort corn flour for this bread it is less processed and more useful:) The bread has some sweet tatse and that's why it is good with jams or preserves. You will get 4 small breads from this recipe.
250 ml of cream
2 whole eggs
1.5 tsp of salt
1 tbsp of sugar
2 tsp of baking powder
Corn flour as needed
Mix together cream, salt, eggs, sugar. Beat slightly. Add in baking powder. Gradually add in corn flour until you form medium hard dough. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 min. Divide the dough to 4 equal parts. Form small breads right on your baking sheet. Punch the middle with special stamp "chakich" or fork.
Bake in well preheated oven until nice golden color. Enjoy it with "Bolqaymoq" or with your favorite soup.
Yoqimli ishtaha!!!

    1. Hi! Really do not have any idea on where to find Uzbek bread stamps in US. Maybe you can order something similar in carpenter shops, but I am not sure:(
