  'ugh ro'qegh'Iwchab, nIb raHta' 
  the *racht* is as heavy as the *rokeg* blood pie (HQ 13.1:8)

A type of food worm served live: "There's nothing worse than half-dead *racht*." (DS9 "Melora")  Klingon food item shunned when half dead (KCD).  

"Food made from live serpent worms (not to be confused with *gagh*)." (DI)  I.e. a larger variety of serpent worm. (FTG)

(KGT 94):  If a dish with a standard preparation technique (a {nay' motlh}, "usual dish") is being offered, asking how it is to be prepared is a demonstration of cultural ignorance. Thus, in addition to [{pIpyuS pach}] *pipius* claw, questions about {bIreQtagh} (*bregit* lung), (targh tIq) (heart of *targ*), {raHta'} (*racht*), {tlhImqaH} (*zilm'kach*), and {Qaj tlhuQ} (*kradge* tail) should be avoided.

{gha'poq} (*grapok* sauce) is a "condiment, often used to bring out the flavor in *gagh* or *racht*. (DI)
