1/4 Photos of Djuvech (Bosnian Vegetables and Rice)
1 hr 5 mins
Originally this is Turkish meal, but since 400 years of Ottomans occupation of Croatian and Bosnian territories, many meals become “Croatian” or “Bosnian”. This is nice side dish to BBQ or roasted meat. You can make it more or less hot, as you like it.
