Khinkali – a traditional dish of the Northeast Caucasian cuisine, the peoples of the North-East Caucasus. One of the most popular in our days. It is a cooked in meat broth pieces of dough (actually “hinkaliny”), served with broth, boiled meat and sauce.

Khinkali should not be confused with the Georgian khinkali, which is a significantly different type of cuisine.”Susz” in Azeri – water.

By the way, do not be tempted by the similarity of the names – Azerbaijani and Georgian khinkali khingal is not the same thing. Although I am in Georgian cuisine is not strong, and there may be some variation.
