Dried milk cake is a common dairy food in a Mongolian herdsman's home. It is coagulated and fermented using cow's milk, goat's milk, or horse milk. Its shape is similar to ordinary tofu. Dried milk cake can be consumed directly, or be further dried for several weeks. The taste is often slightly sour, while some are slightly sweet. It can also be soaked in milk tea.

Dried milk cake can be described as the essence of milk. It is nutritious and delicious. Its protein content is as high as 70.84 percent. It is rich in amino acids and other beneficial trace elements.
