flavor to a number of dishes. 3. Khmeli Suneli is a fragrant Georgian spice which is a mixture of fenugreek, coriander, peppercorns, dill, mint, marigold petals, and bay leaves. And, 4.Tenili is thin strands of cheese from Samtskhe-Javakheti (south-east Georgia) and Kvemo Kartli (East Georgia).

Chikhirtma

Chikhirtma is a famous Georgian soap. It is often believed that the soap is the best hangover cure. It consists of chicken pieces, onions, eggs, flour, vinegar, water, and seasonings such as salt, bay leaves, and coriander. It has a slightly sour flavor and a thick, creamy consistency. The soup is usually served hot, and it is recommended to garnish it with freshly chopped coriander.

Khashi

Another great hangover cure is considered to be khashi. It is a soup made by boiling beef intestines, tripe, shank, as well as other organs such as kidneys. Carrots, onions, bell peppers, and various greens may also be used. After the broth is done, milk or pieces of milk-soaked bread can be added to the pot, along with salt, pepper, and chopped garlic. It is said that khashi was invented when the poor had to give away all their meat to the rich, being left only with the organs, heads, and hooves of the animals.

Kharcho

Kharcho is a hearty Georgian soup consisting of beef or chicken, walnuts, and rice. It is traditionally seasoned with a Georgian spice blend khmeli suneli and Georgian plus sauce Tkemali.
