Macaroni, Tibetan style

macaroni, originally uploaded by mutikonka1.

Here is a meal cooked up by a family living at the base of Mt Muti Konka, on the shores of the lake Chang Haizi. It consists of stir fried fatty pork, plus a concotion that I can only liken to macaroni. Yak cheese is curdled on sticks in an old kettle, and then the stringy product is cooked up with green chillies. You can also see the momo bread that is baked in the ashes of the fire.

Roast potatoes are another staple food.
