Many different Nepalese dishes have emerged from the cultural and geographical diversity of Nepal. Nepalese cuisine is strongly influenced also by the neighboring countries of China, particularly Tibet and India. Different types of soil, ethnic groups and a special climate can be found in Nepal.
When you first look at the menu, you notice that Nepalese cuisine is strongly influenced by the neighboring countries of China, particularly Tibet and India. In the south, you can find more Indian dishes, while the mountain regions are affected by Tibetan dishes. Momo is an example of this. These are Tibetan dumplings with Nepalese spices.
The most famous typical dish is the Dal Bhat. It is made up of lentils (Dal) and rice (Bhat). These two ingredients are the absolute staple food of the Nepalese. A delicious chapati (Indian bread), yogurt, a spicy chutney, South Asian pickles, and spinach go well with it. Another variant is the Dal Bhat Tarkari. Tarkari means vegetable curry. Other side dishes are lemon slices or limes with fresh green chili.
