About Food – Ham Chashushuli (რაჭული ლორის ჩაშუშული)

In this recipe we will show how to make a ham dish from the Racha region of Georgia.

Ham Chashushuli

Ingredients: 150 grams of smoked ham (we used Georgian ham from Racha), 2 large carrots, 2 large onions, 1 clove of garlic, ground pepper (black and red), quarter tsp of ground coriander, 50 grams tomato paste or chopped tomato, fresh parsley (for garnish) and 500 ml of water. Racha ham is quite salty. There is no need for extra salt if the ham you use is salty.

Preparation: Thinly slice the ham and fry on both sides in a pan on a low heat, without oil, for around 3 minutes. It will fry in its own fat.
