Tovuq qanotlaridan qovurdoq (Fried chicken wings with potatoes)

"Qovurdoq" is high calorie and very nutritious meal. Try to use fresh chicken wings for this meal. You can use lamb's tail fat if you want richer taste. Garlic and red chilies also can be added.
500 ml of vegetable oil
600 grams of chicken wings
2 medium sized onions, peeled and sliced
2 medium sized capsicum,(I took one green and one red)seeded and cut in long thin strips
2 small tomatoes, finely chopped
4-5 potatoes, peeled and cut in medium chunks
1 tsp of cumin seeds
1 tsp of crushed coriander
Salt to taste
Fresh chopped greens
Heat up 500 ml of oil in deep and heavy bottomed pan. Put in all of potato chunks and fry over high heat until nice golden color. Take out all potatoes and very carefully pour out the oil, leaving about 150 ml in pan.

Put in chicken wings, fry until golden color and add in onions. Put in all spices and continue frying until onions are transparent. Set the heat on medium, add in capsicum, fry for about 5 min, then put in tomatoes. Fry until oil will start to separate and color is bright. Now, put in potatoes, fry for 5-8 min more, add in salt and take from heat. Serve on a big flat plate, sprinkling fresh greens over. Enjoy!
Yoqimli ishtaha!!!

Macaron shu'rva (Soup with noodles)

"Macaron shu'rva" can be made using different type of meat-beef, lamb, poultry. As I don't eat red meat, I made it out of chicken:) In original recipe it is done with lamb's tail fat, but I replaced it with corn oil. If you want to make it with lamb's tail fat, then melt about 50 grams of it in preheated thick bottomed pan, take out all of shrunk fat pieces and continue as in recipe below. (Recipe will feed 3-4 people)
6 tbsp of corn oil
2 chicken breasts, cubed
2 onions, peeled and sliced
2 tomatoes, finely chopped or cubed
1 medium sized carrot, peeled and cubed
1 tsp of crushed or grind coriander seeds
3/4 cup of bow shaped (or any other small)noodles
Salt to taste
Fresh chopped coriander or any other your favorite greens
Heat up oil in heavy bottomed pan and put in cubed breast chunks, fry over medium heat, until nice golden color and add in onions, fry until onions are transparent. Now put in carrot cubes and fry for about 5-6 min, then add in tomatoes and coriander. Fry until tomatoes are mushy, bright in color and oil will start to separate. Add in 1 liter of water, bring to boil over high heat. When it comes to boil, reduce the heat on medium and scoop out a little foam, that will float to the surface. Half cover the lid and let it simmer for 30 min. At the end, add in noodles and cook for another 10-15 min or until noodles are finely cooked. Take from heat, add in salt.
Serve in individual bowls, sprinkling freshly chopped greens. You can also add in half a tsp of fresh cream, to make the soup richer in flavor.
