Pkhali is a traditional dish having balls of chopped and minced vegetables like cabbage or spinach with herbs and walnuts to enhance the flavor. You would not even know that there are vegetables in pkhali even if you are a meat-lover. Trust our words and have some pkhali when you have your Georgian meal.
If you like some spice in your food, Badrijani is perfect for you. It is a heavily spiced cold starter made from fried and cooled aubergine strips that are coated with a smooth walnut paste. We hope you love walnuts as much as we do.
