Bori Cha (Roasted Unhulled Barley Water Tea) Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

2 tablespoon Unhulled barley
5 cup , water; boiling

Recipe Preparation

"Koreans are not essentially tea drinkers like the Chinese or
Japanese. Upon being seated in a Korean restaurant or home you are

sipped after dining. I prefer to take the tea in small Chinese
teacups at room temperature although it can be served quite warm or
cooled in the refrigerator."

about 10 mins. until the grains have turned to a dark coffee color.

2. Put the toasted barley into the boiling water and simmer over low
heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the mixture and discard the barley.
Cool and serve at room temperature or refrigerate and srve when

Some lower carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or baking mix. When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a soy baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In many cases, you may adapt your best loved recipes that use white flour to use these.

* Don't miss meals Most low carb recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy.
