A good site on Uzbek culture, arts, music and cuisine

by Anonymous on 7/22/2004 · 3 comments

oshI don’t know if you have already visited this introductory site on Uzbek culture, music, arts and cuisine, but I guess it is a good site for those who just begin getting interested with Uzbekistan. This site is designed and hosted by the Umid world (Umid Scholarship Program). The founders of this site are the former Umid Program students in the USA. The Music column of this site redirects you to a Russian language site where you can download Uzbek music. I was impressed by their vast collection of Uzbek music, personally I know only 9-10 of the singers they have in their lists. Famous Uzbek singers like Sevara Nazarhan, Sherali Juraev and Munojat Yulchieva are widely represented.
Personally, I liked most the cuisine part… The cuisine part contains recipes for all major Uzbek dishes.

Alisher, they don’t have beshbarmak. And lagman. Are quinces the same as “barbaris”?

Alisher July 24, 2004 at 10:39 am

Really? I must have overlooked that. How is it possible that they didnt put Lagman ? It is my favourite dish!! Tanya, I will send you recipe for Lagman as soon as I find out from my mother. As for Beshbarmak, it is a pity that they didnt put it, but as far as I know it is more Kazakh, Kyrgyz and Karakalpak cuisine.
I dont have a clear idea what is barbaris, so.., but quince it is a fruit roughly the size of apple, usually yellow, well in Russian it is called ayva, I guess.

No, ayva is persimmon.
Barbaris is more like a small plum, more sour than sweet, bright-red color and long elliptical shape.
I’d appreciate the lagman recipe, thank you.
Beshbarmak is listed as Uzbek dish in the book my mom has “Uzbek kitchen”, published in Tashkent in 1957.
