Xinjiang is a vast and abundant land with beautiful natural scenery, ancient cultural heritage and countless local flavors. Among them, the most famous is xinjiang roast mutton kebabs. But xinjiang’s mutton is far more delicious than kebabs. There are many ways to eat mutton in xinjiang. What surprised me most was to roast a whole lamb in the most terrible desert in the world. Villagers clean sheep in daliyabui village, deep in the taklamakan desert, around 5 a.m.
Compared to the whole lamb, which is grilled over charcoal fire, the whole lamb in daliaburi village is made in a unique way. Place the cleaned sheep in a prepared hot clay pot.
About five or six hours later, the whole roasted sheep was ready to be unearthed. From the scene environment, it is clear that the whole roasted sheep is buried and roasted. It is covered with sand, cardboard, etc. It seems to be designed to completely eliminate the air, and then to cook the lamb in a braised manner.
First the sand is removed, then the pieces of cardboard are removed, and finally the iron cover. Before the lamb came out, everyone gathered around, everyone’s eyes wide open. No one knows what the lamb will look like, but many are already swallowing.
When everything is cleared, the truth just needs to lift the iron lid. But the iron lid could no longer hide the steaming lamb, and an irresistible aroma came out of the cracks. Everyone was amazed.
The iron cover was lifted and thrown aside for a moment. The aroma of the whole roasted lamb came to everyone. The browned lamb attracted people with a peculiar desert smell. According to the dariaboois, xinjiang mutton like this can only be eaten in the taklamakan desert.
When the whole roasted sheep was first brought up, it was still dripping with oil. You can imagine the tender and delicious meat behind the scorched sheep skin. What do you think of the whole lamb? Before they were discovered, the daliaboois lived in the heart of the desert for generations. Despite the harsh desert conditions, the river gave the daliyabui another way to survive: nomadism. Drink the kelia river, eat the kelia river along the water grass grew desert sheep, it itself on the human viscera produced a great temptation.
The daliyabue eat naan (desert sbake) and mutton as their main food, and the taste of these two foods is pursued to the utmost by the daliyabue. Almost any remote village that comes here to escape the world will be attracted by the mutton here. Xinjiang mutton is said to be delicious, but how delicious is xinjiang mutton? This whole desert lamb may give us the answer.
Once the lamb is cooked, the next step is to cut it and enjoy it. When watching the host cut the mutton, I was shooting while swallowing saliva, that can not hide the aroma immediately filled the whole room.
The cut lamb was first served on a plate, and the host was ready to hand it to guests from afar. I snapped one before everyone was ready to gobble it up. Looking at a plate full of mutton, suddenly remembered that in this autumn, the lamb has posted autumn fat again fit. So, have you ever had a roasted whole lamb like this? Look at the picture is not also very want to eat?
