GEORGIAN CUISINE
The Most Spicy Adjika with Spices
10 August, 2018
Ajika or adjika is a Georgian-Abkhazi hot, spicy but subtly flavored dip often used to flavor food. The name itself comes from the Abkhaz word аџьыка meaning "salt". 

Common varieties of ajika resemble Italian red pesto in appearance and consistency. Though it is usually red, green ajika is also made with unripe peppers.

Commercially it is now made and sold in the UK by an Abkhazian expatriate family, producing hot, mild and green varieties.
