There is a saying in Uzbekistan that guests can only leave the host's house after Palov has been offered. Prepared with rice, meat, spices and vegetables, the traditional dish is also enjoyed as a regular meal, to celebrate special occasions, help those in need or honour loved ones who have passed. Transmitted from master to apprentice, within families, peer groups and community-based institutions, the practice acts to strengthen social ties, promote solidarity and is part of the community's cultural identity.
