The kulish is an age-old Ukrainian dish, popularized by Zaporizhian Cossacks. This pottage, made of millet, salo, potatoes and onions, was highly praised by Cossacks for its easy-to-cook and nutritive characteristics. Quite often, the kulish was a great substitute of full-fledged dinner during their military marches.
