Pozi or Buuzi

Pozi resembles the Caucasian hinkali, Chinese manti türk or baozi. Buuzi look like pelmeni but are much bigger. They are made of wheat dough and have exactly 33 tweezers, they are steamed, inside they have meat and chopped onions. The pozi are said to resemble yurt houses (tents of Central Asian and Siberian nomads) because of their round shape and hole at the top. They serve them on a large plate that they put in the center of the table from where everyone can pick them up. They eat them only with their hands – first they take a bite of the bottom, drink all the broth inside and then they eat the rest. This national dish has its own Buuzin Bayar festival, which is held in February in the capital of Buriatia Ulan-Ude. In the city’s central square you can taste dozens of types of pozi, watch some contests and tournaments.
