Updated: 2018-05-08 Print


Stir-fried millet, or "Horisenbada" in Mongolian, is a favorite food among the people of Inner Mongolia. It is made from boiled, fried and crushed millet. Depending on slightly different cooking methods, it can be divided into crispy stir-fried millet and hard stir-fried millet.

The natives usually eat the stir-fried millet with Mongolian milk tea. They pour the aromatic tea into the millet, and drain the tea until the millet is soft, then mix it with butter and brown sugar. The combination of sweet and sour flavors is a fantastic experience for the palette.
