1kg zucchini

2 medium tomatoes (around 350g)

3 tbsp olive oil 

3 garlic cloves 

Salt and pepper to taste 

56 dill sprigs for garnish


  1. Thickly peel the zucchinis, about 0.5 cm thick. Set aside the centre of the zucchini to use in other dishes, such as dips and baking.

  7. Cook on high heat for around 5 minutes, reduce to low and continue to cook for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally and add a little boiling water if needed. 

  8. Allow the cooked Kashkarikas to cool and serve at room temperature, garnished with a sprinkling of fresh dill.
