Kharpert Kololak Recipe

A true gourmet dish from Armenian Cuisine we call Kharpert Kololak . This dish can be a good addition to comfort food menu . And will go really good with any kind of pilaf , veggie salad or pasta.

Very simple list of ingredients and quick preparation makes Karpert Kololak a good time saver meal , not to mention it’s very delicious and quite filling. I tried making mini sliders with added greens and it turned out amazingly tasty.

Hope many will give it a try and like it as much as we did .
