Here are some recipes of popular Iraqi dishes that you can try.
Iraqis have a deep appreciation for their own cuisine. It is considered a very “rich” and refined cuisine, as expensive meat is eaten at nearly every meal. This meat can be sheep, lamb, chicken, beef, goat or fish. Iraqis view each part of the animal as healthy and nutritious, and make sure to cook all the organs, including the heart, kidneys and liver, brain, feet, eyes, and ears. The head, called pacha, of the sheep is considered to be a delicacy, very healthy and delicious in Iraq, and commonly eaten by men so they become strong. The only meat not commonly eaten in Iraq is pork, as it is forbidden for consumption by the Islamic religion.
