Funchoza is a well known salad in Central Asia. I am not very sure of it’s origins. Always thought of it being Korean but recent searches show that it is actually Uighur (ethnic minority in China) dish. The ingredients might remind Japchae but the taste is absolutely not the same. Japchae uses potato starch noodles, funchoza is done with rice noodles.
I got inspired to make this easy and wholesome dish from one of our www.arbuz.com participants Beyazgul. Wanting to learn more about the dish, I did a little research of my own.
This particular recipe of Foret Noire Cake is very close to the Schwarzwäld cake and as I heard, is very popular among French and Germans. There are different methods used in making the Black Forest Cake, as it seems that the original version has been changed many times. I chose this particular one since I came to love it very much.
