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.
As of today, the Ukrainian housewives have considerably diversified the Cossacks pottage complimenting it with new ingredients as mushrooms, meat, haricot beans. The ideal kulish is considered to be cooked over an open fire; however, the home-made pottage isn’t inferior to the old original.
Nevertheless, if you want to enjoy the authentic Cossack’s dish, you’re better try to cook kulish over a fire in field conditions.
