'Au tau' - a special porridge favoured by H'mong people in Ha Giang

Update: 08:16 | 20/12/2021

The main ingredient of a special porridge favoured by the Hmong people in Ha Giang is the root of the monkshood aconite plant, known as 'au tau', which typically grows on Ha Giang’s highest mountain peak, Tay Con Linh.

The process of cooking the porridge is very time-consuming, because the roots can be poisonous without being processed and cooked in the right manner.
