Uyghurs

IMG_6786.jpg

The Uyghurs are a Turkic people and the majority of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Uyghur culture is deeply rooted in this area since before the time of Genghis Khan and Uyghur's history reflects the exchange of languages and religions that occurred along the Silk Road. Today, the Uyghur language is written in a modified Arabic script and most Uyghurs are Sunni Muslims. Having achieved sovereignty periodically throughout history, the Uyghurs today are under Chinese rule.

 

Food

As one can imagine the food of the Uyghurs are largely influenced by the historic exchange of goods in this area, making them mostly traders. Xinjiang’s harsh desert terrain is largely uncultivable, but a system of irrigation introduced by the ancient Uyghurs created “oases,” allowing people in this area to begin cultivating vegetables, wheat and fruit. These oases are famous for producing sweet melons and grapes. However, the feature food of the Uyghurs is the incredible Lamb Kebab, often simply prepared allowing the quality of the meat to shine. Lamb Kebabs roasting over coals and nan, a leavened flatbread cooked in a Tandoor oven, are common street foods for Uyghurs.

Kebab

The lamb kebabs are marinated in a mixture of onion, garlic and pomegranate juice, which adds a kick of tartness to the lamb. We have to add a mixture of cumin and salt as a finishing touch, which is a standard way to season Uyghur lamb kebabs
