Hey everyone!

At long last, we're launching the Armenians.com Cookbook. We've already got over 150 recipes from all types of cuisine - but of course, we need more. So please make your contributions, and especially Armenian recipes!! drool.gif

At the end of the year, Mosjan is inviting us all over to his house for a cook-off, but we can only use recipes from the cook book! cool.gif

Enjoy everyone!

Nice site ladies and gentlemen.
Congratulations!
Finally something constructive. Something that "por kshtatsne". smile.gif smile.gif
Maral, that recipe of yours "moujaddara" is in fact known as "moudardara" by those natives. We know it by "vospov pilaf". Mujaddara does not contain rice, its main and only ingredient is lentil which at the end looks like a paste of lentil and whatever spices.

I was going to ask why Turkey is not featured in the list of ethnic recipes when I realized that it is in fact featured under the Armenia.
That is a awhole separate subject that is best discussed in the language section. Speaking of language, do Armenians really cook? Do they have a room to do this? How come there is no Armenian word for kitchen? Is it because most Armenian cooking is done outdoors?

Arpa,Vospov Pilaf is vosp yev bulghour and the Moujadehreh is vosp and short grain rice,which is mushy but congeals because of teh starch in the rice,I suppose that's the Arab influence.

I have not seen vosp yev tsavar(Armenian of bulghur) in quite a while. Rice seem to have virtually and prmamently replaced it. You may be right about the pasty appearance, yet that is waht the Arabs call mujaddarah, the other where the rice or the tsavar is intact and granular is called mdardara.
Then again, don't go by me, my main specialty is the three minute egg that I boil for 6 minutes.

Can we call them by their Armenian names like "vospapur" or "vospilaf"?

No I can't call it "vospapur" or "vospilaf" , it would confuse my family smile.gif
And we can't have any confusion about what we are eating after all rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif
