The recipe
Nasreddin Hodja

One day Hodja went to the market and bought a fine piece of meat. On the way home he met a friend who gave him a special recipe for the meat. Hodja was very happy. But then, before he got home, a large crow stole the meat from Hodja's hands and flew off with it.
- You thief! Hodja angrily called after departing crow. You have stolen my meat! But you won't enjoy it; I've got the recipe!
