Travel from Asia -Uzbekistan to Russia

IN My first trip to the Russia by railway (7yo) I ate very strange meal - "The mutton peas with frost bacon fat"
It was cold & i was Unforgettable!!! I was wrapped up in all switers we had but it wasn't made me warmer....
That meal made me feel better & comfortable I fall asleep.
This dish was most unusual & original in taste.

By the way my Mom asked the recipe. I'll try it & say about my imaginations! If somebody want's to know more about teh Dish welcome
my ICQ 342978342 jobox1_20@hotmail.com

Hi Joanna, Welcome to DC!

That sounds like an interesting trip and quite an unusual dish. Can you describe what kinds of ingredients were in it? That way perhaps someone here might know what recipe you mean (sorry, I have never heard of it before)

Ciao Joanna, or zdravstvuyeetie!!

First of all, to DC!! I see that now you live in Moscow... Russia is one of the places I have always dreamed about, and would love to visit someday. We would love to see some new recipes for Russian goodies if you can share them with us.... but more than anything, we hope you will have lots of fun with us!!

i have had peas, the marrowfat kind, cooked in bacon grease. is it something like that joanna? i'm not sure how they were prepared, but my dad alwyas added worcestershire sauce to them. it was delicious, but what isn't that is cooked in bacon?

joanna, have you ever had salted cubes of pork fat? i think they are called salo, or sula, or something like that. i had it a few times, with ice cold vodka. once you have a few shots, you get past the fact that it's pure fat, and just let it melt in your mouth. man it's good!

Could it be mutton pies, rather than peas? We make mutton pies in Scotland, but never with bacon fat

Good thought Ishbel I was thinking perhaps it was a lamb and pea dish, there are a few recipes with lamb and peas in some of the Indian cookbooks that I've read.

your English is so much better than my Russian (which I did study in college, but have had so little practice speaking or writing!)

This looks like an interesting "chickpea curry" and I will be giving it a try.

Welcome, Joanna! I must tell you that I have always fantasized about traveling across Russia by train. I think it was all those glorious scenes from Dr. Zhivago that piqued my imagination.
Your English is quite understandable. There are many Americans who can't express themselves as well as you do. One hint about spelling...if you are unsure of a word, simply do a Google search on it. It will come up with the correctly spelled word, saying, "Did you mean...?"
