Dietary Culture – Tibetan Diet and Cooking

The major food of the Tibetan nationality is glutinous rice cake made through mixing roasted barley flour, butter and milk tea together. Such cakes are characterized of easy making, storing and carrying, good taste, hunger-resisting and rich nutrition. Cow and sheep meats are also their main foods.

The Tibetan people always cook such meats to nearly done and then take the meats through cutting with Tibetan knife. Such an eating method is called “hand-grasping”. Sour milk made with fermented milk is one of the favorites of the Tibetan people in summer and autumn. They like drinking butter tea, milk tea and barley wine and do not eat the meats of odd-toed animals, birds and fish.
