Dovga presents cold sour milk soup while the rest of them are hot meat soups. Bozbash and kufta are soups with mutton-and-rice meat balls and a lot of spices. Piti is a very special dish. Each helping of the soup with mutton and national kind of peas - nokhud - is cooked in a special clay pot and served in it to the table.
