Chaduna (Lat. Dryopteris filix-mas)

A member of the fern family, which is used as a dish (in the form of Pkhali), along with many healing properties.
Chaduna grows in the woods, in humid areas, and is harvested in the spring, with newly grown young and spirally curved leaves.
Its preparation is quite simple:
The freshly picked stems are freed from the leaves, washed, and boiled. Coriander, spring garlic, spring onions, mint, oil (butter), and raw cottage cheese are used as spices.
Chaduna has a specific taste, the aroma of forest land and spring herbs create an unforgettable taste. An additional uniqueness is the short period of yield (about 2-3 weeks in the spring).
Boiled Chaduna is also preserved in canned condition.
