Vegetarian Skyu recipe

There are times when I do wonder why it took me so long to eat this… Hahaha, actually it’s this recipe.

Ladakh cuisine is the same as Tibet cuisine because of the geographical region. The food here is non-spicy and heavy on carbohydrates. This is how each and every state makes India so diverse and rich in culture.

It is a stew made up of root vegetables and cooked in milk. Barley is the staple flour of this region. If visiting Ladakh do try this traditional/local recipe if you get a chance. Meanwhile, you can try this at home as well.

In Ladakh milk is called omaskyu oma means milk.

Healthy and wholesome I say Healthy because of pasta which is made using whole wheat/barley flour. Fresh and loaded with veggies.

Don’t get confused for skyu and Thukpa both are different because of the noodles and pasta used.

The simplicity and freshness of this recipe will blow your mind.

If you are thinking of cooking something simple, easy and quick this is the recipe for you.

Surprise your guests with this dish, they will definitely love your versatility here.
