Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Is Oshi Palav “the king of meals”?

Tajikistan is a small, mountainous country in Central Asia with a population of just under nine million. For Tajiks, Oshi Pelave (pilaf) is more than just a traditional dish. It is a part of their cultural heritage and enjoyed at regular mealtimes, social gatherings, celebrations, and rituals. This so-called ‘King of meals’ is made of rice, vegetables, and meat with garlic and various spices to add color and flavor. It is prepared for and shared by many it is not only enjoyed by the people around the table but also others in the neighborhood, orphanage and nursing home. Because of this sharing nature, it also eases tensions and conflicts between the people who have different opinions or interests.

While today’s sharing economy shares things and places like bicycles, cars, and rooms, this Tajik’s sharing heritage offers opportunities to people to unite and enjoy the meal and time together. Indeed, Oshi Palav is for treat and generosity, not by greed or economy.

Enjoy seeing the photos and learning about this traditional dish, and think what sharing really means.
