Khashi is a very popular soup in Georgia, because Georgians believe that it cures the hangover. Khashi is traditionally eaten early in the morning, with lavashi (Georgian bread) and chacha (Georgian pomace brandy).


  • 1 kg Beef hooves
  • 1 kg Beef paunch
  • 1 head Garlic, mashed
  • Salt to taste


  1. Clean and wash hooves and paunch very well. Cut and place them into a lage pot. Add enough water to cover the meat and simmer on a low fire at least for 5-6 hours. When the stock is about to boil, skim off the scum  to have a nice and clean soup. When the meat will fall off the bones, the soup is ready. Serve khashi hot, with salt, mashed garlic, lavashi and chacha.
