  1. If you make this dish over high heat, you will not be able to get the necessary crust consistency and just burn it.

  2. These niceties in national cuisine are very interesting. We can even think of the life of the ancestors, knowing how they were supposed to cook their food centuries ago.

  3. The only best chance to cook it well is to strictly follow the recommendations given above! In such a way, you will receive what you want to receive!
