Name of Uzbek Spicy Carrot Salad in Queens?

Ellen Nov 24, 2001 12:42 PM

I've enjoyed a cold spicy carrot salad served in an
Uzbek restaurant in Rego Park.

I'd like to find the recipe and wonder if anyone know the name of the dish?

        "Stalin deported the Tatars (cheburek) and the Koreans (morkovcha) to Central Asia."
        Morkovcha is the name of the salad.

          "Morkovka" is carrot in Russian. The salad in most russian restaurants will be called Korean Carrot.
