Shivit oshi – lagman on dill infusion, is a national dish of Khorezm (originally Khiva) cuisine. A real Shivit Osh or "lagman in Khorezm" is bright green noodles with dill, white sour—milk sauce, and vaju sauce from vegetables with meat. This is a kind of quintessence of green pasta carbonara or tagliatelle. The recipe of this ancient dish became known in Uzbekistan thanks to the Khiva chef Rajab Sattarov, who moved to Tashkent in 1958.The noodles, skillfully prepared by hand, are surprising, which acquires a greenish color due to the juice of dill.
