Eezgii - Ээзгий

Dried mass of cheese.

Eezgii in a cloth sack for storage


Cook the milk, and add a little Kefir, like with the preparation of Byaslag (cheese). But after curdling, keep everything cooking until all liquid has gone. Roast the dried mass a little more, until it turns into small pieces of golden color. The final product is dry enough to be stored in a sack of cloth (at least in the dry mongolian climate).


Eezgii serves as a snack for nibbling in between. The taste is slightly sweet, with a grainy or floury texture on the tongue.
