This is the national dish of Kazakhstan. The yogurt is only used during the short time that it is available. This is a reduced version of the recipe, normally a whole cow is used. It is cooked in a huge pot over an open fire.
I spent two months in Kazakhstan living with an Uzbek family. Following are some of the recipes I picked up there. I wasn't always sure what spices were being used, so I'm using this Afghan spice mix which is pretty close to what they used.
I am including this as a curiosity. Even most Kazakhs don't drink this very much any more, little wonder. It has to be the most awful alcoholic beverage on the face of the Earth. Still, if you're a glutton for punishment, desperate for a totally new experience or looking for a new way to prove your machismo, then give it a try. It is also found in Mongolia.
I got this recipe from a grandmother in Phnom Penh. It's normally eaten for breakfast in Cambodia, but westerners would probably consider it lunch or dinner food. If you can't find the powdered rice root, don't worry, it's not that importaint. For the toasted rice powder, toast the rice in a dry pan until brown and grind to a powder.
