Would you expect to find pasta in Azerbaijan? Actually, there are numerous pasta dishes, including khangal - small squares of dough topped with butter, ground meat and a yogurt-garlic sauce.

Sometimes khangal is also served with fried onion and scrambled egg, depending on one's taste.
Khangal is usually prepared during cold weather because dough is believed to warm up the body. It's an informal main course, one that's a special favorite for kids. An Azerbaijani would only share khangal with family or close friends. (Count yourself lucky if you've been included, too.)
