For everyone else: I got nothin’!


The International Women’s Association of Mongolia recently posted a link to a recipe on their Facebook page. So I thought, why not, live on the edge, let’s make Khuushuur for dinner!

They're essentially meat patties / rissoles inside dough. Fyi - this is them pre cooking!

Living in these far-away lands has made me very resourceful. No rolling pin? No problem! There's always a wine bottle on hand!

Just don't forget to put the lid back on after you take a swig and before you start rolling again!

Then you fry them up (hey, I never said they were healthy!)

And ta daaaaaa! Delish!

Now, if I was a better food blogger, like my friend Jen who writes Paddington Pantry then you would get a step-by-step recount, hilarious commentary and some highly stylised photos. Hmm… come to think of it, you’d just get an overall better blog experience.

Seriously… the award for best line in a blog goes to: And why does such an ordinary tasting fruit have to be so comically large?

FYI: I’d love to link to the recipe I used, but it seems the website is now down. But a simple search for “Khuushuur recipe” will throw back many results – so be a devil, and why not make them yourself!
