Azerbaijian tradition states that this dish be served as an accompaniment to Plov (or Pilaf). I recommend serving with Arminyan Plov (Armenian Pilaf) Recipe #289309, Azerbaijani Plov (Azerbaijanian Pilaf) Recipe #289313, or Kazaki Oreshki Plov (Kazaki Nut Pilaf) Recipe #289315. If you were offering this to guests you would have several accompaniments along with the main dish of plov. Plov is what we call pilaf, a dish associated with the Middle East, put popular in Russia and former Soviet Central Asia as well. It originates with the Mongols and the Chinese and spread along the Silk Road to the West. One western version is paella from Spain.
