Tsagaan Sar

Just returned from a trip to Mongolia, in time for Tsagaan Sar. This is our Tsagaan Sariin Idee. This remains on the table for 3-4 days of the new year.
Idee is made of an odd number of "Ul Boov" layers, which are these pastries made from flour, ghee, salt etc. Then it is decorated with mostly dairy products and in some cases, sweets.

Interesting to see many of my relatives after so many years.
