Mongolia traditional food

Mongolian cuisine is quite simple cuisine, mainly limited by the arid regions of the Mongolian Plateau, whether the steppe, which covers most of these regions, the Gobi Desert, the Khangai. Most of the food comes from animals, whether for their meat, fat or dairy products they produce. Millet is the main Mongolian cereal, but barley and wheat are also used. Fruits and vegetables are almost absent from the kitchen.
