Chotagi is a traditional meal in Ladakh and I ate it twice during my Markha Valley Trek. Once in Rumchung and the other time in Nimaling , at the permanent camp. Cho means water and tagi means bread. It is a kind of noodle stew with pieces of shaped dough mixed with vegetables like carrots, potatoes and green leafs. Sometimes meat is added. It has a mild flavour.
