"Shuba" - Шуба

This is a traditional russian food, but because of the fact that Moldavian, Russian and Ukranian cuisine have a lot in common, Shuba became something common for this territory.

The ingridients are:
1 herring
1 carrot
1 onion
4 potatoes
1 beetroot
3 eggs

The method of preparing:

Put the carrot, the potatoes, the beetroot and the eggs in a bowl and cook them until they will be done. It depends, for example it will take 20 minutes to cook the beetroot and the potatoes, and 10 min for the eggs.
Cut everything into small piecies like you can see in the picture.

Firstly you put the small pieces of herring. Than cover them with circles of onions and pieces of carrot. Than should follow a layer of potatoes. Than arrange on it the eggs. Cover everything with a tiny layer of herring and onions.

One of the last elements is the beetroot. It should be peeled. Arrange it upon everything in a little more bigger size layer than the rest of ingridients.

At the end put some oil apun it and mayonese. Exactly how it looks in the picture.

This is how it should look from one side.
