Gozinaki (Georgian Caramelized Walnut Candy)

Churchkhela (Georgian) is a traditional sausage-shaped candy originating from the Caucasus region. It is a very popular food, combining two of Georgia’s favorites – grapes and nuts.  Made by repeatedly dipping a long string of nuts in concentrated fresh grape juice.   Georgian warriors carried Churchkhelas with them because they contain enough calories for one man in a day!  Ingredients for 2 churchkhelas: 1 1/2 quarts of white grape juice, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 cup of flour, 40 walnut halves.

Malai Kofta is a rich and delicious North Indian gravy of deep fried paneer 'n potato dumplings swimming happily in a creamy tomato based sauce.

Vegans can use firm tofy instead of paneer while making the kofta balls and ground cashew paste instead of fresh cream for the gravy.

Georgians make amazing food with walnuts, garlic and spices! This looks like a good recipe for the beloved Badrijani Nigvzit (eggplant with nuts). Can be augmented slightly if you happen to have Georgian spices. Also, I prefer folded rather than rolled.
