Ladakh, truly described as high altitude
cold-arid desert is one of the far most eastern regions of J&K state, India.
Because of unfavourable and hostile environment prevailing over the region,
cultivation is limited to a very less scale
(both time and place). Under these conditions, one of the major reasons behind
human habitation is the ingenuity of local people, who has devised new and
sustainable way of living. One major product of this ingenuity is the
traditional foods and beverages, which over the time has been evolved (through
outside influence and local resources available) and established in the fooding
system of Ladakhi people. An attempt
has been made to bring forth those dishes and beverages, which are true
representative of the region. The very common dishes like kholak and paba has been
described in detail including the preparation methods.
