Kazakh national food

Kazakh national food has its basis on the traditional nomad cuisine had to be easy to cook. It is majorly composed of meat (horse and lamb) based with some components of dairy products and bread. Since the weather in Kazakhstan is very challenging, the food was not only nutritious but also contained a lot of fat so as to provide energy. This means that the meal can at times look too oily to the individuals who are not used to it. Some of the food is delicious but some are plain according to my taste but all in all, everything is worth trying at least once in life. Examples of Kazakh national foods include:-

Beshbarmak: This is the most popular food in Kazakhstan. The Kazakh national food means ‘five fingers’ which refers to the fact that the meal is eaten using the hand. It comprises of boiled meat and huge noodles that seem like layers of lasagna in onion gravy. There is numerous tradition encompassing the preparation, serving, and consumption of beshbarmak.

Kazy: This is a traditional sausage made of horsemeat that is fattened, the fat is very nutritious. The dense coils of meat that is black in color seem somewhat unappetizing in the supermarket at the meat chiller cabinets. Kazy is a famous dish in a celebratory occasion that involves meals.

Shashlik: This is kebabs that have been prepared over a charcoal fire. It is traditionally made from meat, beef to be specific but it can also be made from fish or even chicken and be served alongside flatbread. Meat that is used to prepare Shashlik is usually soaked all through the night and then spiced distinctively (the spice usually go hand in hand with roast chicken). Shashlik is a common and a compulsory part of any picnic barbecue.
