Kyrgyzstani pasties



Kyrgyzstan pasty - Somsat


The Cornish Pasty has learned about pasties in Kyrgyzstan. These were discovered by three members of the Stenalees Surf Club during their Punto-powered Kernow Mongolia Minstrel Tour. This was a 9,000 mile drive to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care. They succeeded in raising 5,000 plus a further 1,000 for the MercyCorps Mongolia. This was a tremendous effort by three bad-ass altruists from Cornwall .....

Their story can be read on their blog and their pasty discovery is described on the page for Day 33, in Jalal-Abad.

The somsat are cooked in a "mental" oven, by sticking them to the clay walls and then scraping them off once they are baked.
