    How to Cook dishes from Tibet


    Tibet is a region of Central Asia, mostly located on a high altitude plateau. It is part of the People's Republic of China, with the exception of some areas claimed as part of Tibet by China but controlled by India. The legitimacy of Chinese rule over Tibet is of course disputed, with Dalai Lama and others arguing it is illegitimate.

    Tibetan cuisine is unusual since only few crops will grow at the high altitudes found in the region. The most important crop in Tibet is barley which is used to make a dough called tsampa which in turn is made into noodles or dumplings. Many dishes in Tibetan cuisine are flavored with mustard seeds.

    Some Tibetan recipes include:
    • Balep korkun - A round flatbread made in a frying pan.

    • Momos - Dumplings made from tsampa (barley dough). They can be filled with ground meat (beef, chicken, pork, turkey, water buffalo, or yak) usually combined with onions, shallot, and garlic, or with small potatoes in a tomato sauce, or with cheese. The dumplings are generally cooked by steaming over a soup, which is then eaten with the dumplings. Sometimes momos are also pan-fried or deep-fried after being steamed.

    • Thenthuk - Noodle soup usually containing yak meat or mutton.
