Feeling a little under the weather? You should consider a bowl of Khash. This is a pungent dish that is believed to have healing powers. But a strong stomach is required for those not used to such things. Eaten throughout the Middle East and Eastern Europe, Khash is often served with an accompanying glass of vodka. There’s no question that Dutch courage is needed in order to get this down.
Khash is made from boiled cow and sheep parts. It’s difficult to be more precise — but animal heads, feet and stomachs are often thrown into the bubbling pot. This is considered an effective hangover cure — although on reflection, you might prefer just to sleep it off.
Served, amongst other places, in Afghanistan and Albania, Bulgaria and Bosnia, Georgia and Greece, Khash is thought of as a local delicacy. Add salt, garlic, lemon juice or vinegar according to taste — and don’t forget the vodka.
