Food lovers! Here is something to chow on. Imagine a plate filled with 10 or more exotic recipes. That’s the smell of Nepali Cuisine (commonly known as Dal-Bhat-Tarkari).
Nepal is rich in culture and traditions. And all share the same group of spices. So, how different may the culture be, the food here has the same essence.
The phrase “Dal Bhat Power 24 Hour” has been famous among foreigners in Nepal. And to some extent the phrase is true. Dhal-Bhat has been a common dish throughout Nepal. The Dal is a kind of soup made from lentils and the spices add more flavor to it. Bhat basically is boiled rice sometimes served with boiled cashews, raisins, and other nuts. And Tarkari is the curry or veggies that go with Dal and Bhat. And some sour spicy pickle, Yum! Sounds appetizing! Doesn’t it?
Other than “Dal-Bhat” there is one more set of cuisine, which describes ancient Nepal.” Dhindo or Dhido” is a dish prepared from millet powder. The procedure to prepare Dhido is quite easy but consumes a lot of energy to make it just right. “Gundruk” is an ancient dish that packs a punch of spices and sourness. It is made by tightly concealing green vegetables in a plastic urn and keeping it in sun for several days. Villages here still eat Dhido.
