Celebrating, Tibet Style

Potala Palace

Party Time!

Also known as dresil, Tibetan sweet rice is served on special occasions such as New Years, weddings or other celebrations.

Since Tibet's staple grain is barley, basmati rice, nuts and dried fruits all had to travel from India. Lucky for us, though, these ingredients are readily available at just about any grocery store.

This dish is popular not only among Tibetans living in Tibet, but also among the Tibetan diaspora in places like India (especially the states of Ladakh, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh), the U.S., Sweden and various regions of northern Nepal.
