Good evening to everyone here. Before I begin, let me ask you one simple question. Do you know what sambal belacan is? Yes, I’m sure everybody in here, at least have heard of it. It is one of the famous foods in Malaysia. I’m standing here tonight not to talk about local foods but Mongolian foods. What are orom, tarag and shar tos? Sound bizarre, right?

Of course not. If we eat like them, it will bring a lot of diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and so on. The milk from sheep, cattle, horses, camels and goats are used in preparing their foods. I would say that they have found creative and ingenious way to use the milk from all the animals. Usually, the method of drying is common in preparing the food from the milk. The dried food is stored for a long winter and spring. Their diets also have a large proportion of animal fat.

The tradition of using, producing and preparing are familiar outsides main cities. Some other Mongolian foods are orom (cream that forms on top of boiled milk), aarul (dried curds), airag (fermented milk from female horses), nermel (home made vodka), tarag (sour yogurt), shar tos (melted butter from the curd)...
