Description: Due to the nomadic lifestyle of the Kalmyks, traditional baked items and baking methods have been rather simple. Bulsn guir, for example, which is a staple, is baked as follows. A piece of dough is put in a pan with butter and then covered with a lid. Then the pan is put inside a heap of red-hot dung and left until the biscuits are baked. Bortsg, traditional biscuits of various size and shapes, are fried in oil. One of the favourite dishes among the Kalmyks is bulmuk, a spoonful of dough mixed with berries and fried in butter or cream.
