Yak yogurt


When I visited Xiahe a few weeks ago I sampled many local dishes I had never tried before. Many of these dishes had yak at their foundations. Yak yogurt is one of these dishes, though I had tried it once before.

Yak yogurt is not very different from regular yogurt in taste, but it’s much lumpier in texture. It’s almost as if it’s past its expiration date. The beauty of the yogurt is that it tastes so fresh and sour, not like most store bough yogurts. I guess that’s mainly because it’s locally made without any additives. If you want it sweet you can always add a little sugar yourself.
