📷Down with a nasty 🤧 has me going back to a very traditional Tibetan staple food: Tsampa aka roasted barley flour. .
Food Story| My mom used to proudly say my siblings and I️ never got sick as 👶🏼 or kids because we grew up on tsampa. Although barley is not as popular as other whole grains today, its health benefits are very impressive with very high fiber content, vitamins, minerals & antioxidants.
Tsampa can be eaten in a dry form, mostly by adults, with a side of Tibetan butter tea or as pictured, as a cereal/porridge form simply mixed with hot water, sugar and butter a form mostly made for infants and kids. I️ added walnuts and dried cranberries to mine in place of butter & sugar. #himalayandiaries #iamtibetan #tsampa
