Tajiks national food - Plov

Plov is one of the national foods of the Tajik people. This rice dish, which is yellow due to the

carrots ond oil, is eaten in weddings. Plov is essential because it keeps people in touch with the

old traditions during the most important times of life. One marvelous thing about Plov is that

you can eat it either with a spoon or with your hand, whatever you prefer. As for me, I like to

eat Plov with my hand, when I am in my home and when I eat it with my family or friends. That

is more comfortable for me. A wedding is not a wedding without Plov. The tradition of Plov

extends into other ceremonies. To taste Plov is to taste the Tajik spirit.
