– RECIPE –
One day Nasreddin Hodja and his friends were chatting in the coffeehouse about food. They were reminiscing how one dish was heavenly and it made you eat your fingers with it. All talk of food was making every one hungry.
Finally when someone described how to make a delicious Liver and told that the liver has many different ways to cook, if you cook it as I describe it will be more tasty.
The Hodja asked him; I can’t remember this description accurately, so could you write the recipe down on a piece of paper. His friend wrote the recipe and gave it to the Hodja.
The Hodja put the recipe in his coat pocket and he headed for the butcher, he bought a kilo fresh Liver and then the Hodja started to imagine of a delicious dinner, the recipe in his coat pocket and Hodja was swinging the liver package of he walked.
A Hawk descended and grabbed the liver and flew off with it. The Hodja shouted out after the Hawk going up , the recipe in his hand toward it; All right than take the meat! But you won’t be able to enjoy it. I have got the recipe.
