How to cook bozbash

For a start, we soak chickpeas overnight in cold water. In the morning we drain the water, fill it with fresh water and put it on a slow fire, cook for about 1.5 hours until ready.


Now proceed to prepare the broth. Ribs are washed and poured approximately 4 liters of cold water, put on fire. When the water boils, you need to remove the foam. We throw a couple of laurel leaves, bell pepper and chopped onions, cover the pan with a lid and cook the broth for an hour on a slow fire.
