Georgians will forgive me, but we will refer to this recipe as Ukrainian cuisine. Why so? Because adjika prepared in Georgia has more spices, shades of taste and does not contain tomatoes in the traditional recipe. Therefore, today’s recipe is more simplified and adapted for Ukraine, a version of homemade adjika.

In fact, there are as many recipes for adjika as there are recipes for borscht. It may differ depending on the region: red and green adjika are prepared in Abkhazia. The main difference is that there are no tomatoes in the recipes. In Adjara, the sauce is prepared with the addition of wine vinegar and with hot and sweet capsicum, green adjika is prepared with many spices typical of Georgian cuisine and only with hot green pepper.

What do we need to prepare homemade adjika?

Despite the time of year, you can easily buy all the necessary ingredients for cooking, but at the end of summer, it will not cause as much damage to your budget as, for example, in the middle of January.

So, we need: tomatoes, paprika, hot pepper, garlic, oil, salt, sugar, vinegar.

Vegetables should be cleaned, passed through a meat grinder, and heat treated. Detailed steps are described in the recipe below.

As you can see, the recipe is elementary, even for a beginner.

Advantages and disadvantages of adjika
