Tibetan Mandalas



Tibetan Tsampa

Tibetan Tsampa

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

    100 ml water or soy milk
    1 teaspoon to1 tablespoon margarine
    1/2 cup roasted barley flour
    sugar/salt to taste


Boil water or heat soy milk, then pour into a rice bowl.

Add margarine and stir to make an oily mixture.

Add barley flour and mix with hands till a dough-like mixture is formed.

Add sugar and keep kneading till the dough becomes firm and non-sticky.

Add either water or soy milk and flour and margarine to taste.

This is the most traditional food of Tibet, originally made with tea and yak butter. Great for energy especially when the weather is cold!
