19th- 20th Century Wooden Tibetan Antique Tsampa Bowl, made hand lathe. See the crack really an attractive bowl the wood is lovely.

Tsampa is quite simple to prepare; it is known as a convenience food and often used by sherpas and nomads. In its most common form, tsampa may be prepared by placing the roasted barley flour in a bowl and pouring tea over the top. After the preparer uses his fingers to knead the mixture into a doughy paste, small parts of the tsampa are broken off, kneaded into small rolls or balls.
