Momos – Momos are a popular food item in Nepal, which is a type of dumpling that originated from Tibet. They have become a beloved snack and meal option in Nepal, and you can find them being sold in small roadside stalls, markets, and restaurants across the country.

Momos are made by wrapping a thin layer of dough around a filling of minced meat, vegetables, or cheese, paneer and then steaming or frying them until they are cooked. The most common meat used in momos is buffalo, although chicken, pork, and sometimes beef are also used. Vegetarian momos typically contain a mixture of cabbage, onions, carrots, and other seasonal vegetables. The dough used to make momos is typically made from wheat flour, although in some regions, it may be made from rice flour or other local grains.

Momos are usually served with a spicy dipping sauce made with tomatoes, chilies, garlic, and other ingredients. Some places may also serve them with tangy tomato pickles or a milder soy-based sauce.

Dal Bhat – Dal Bhat is a traditional Nepali meal that consists of steamed rice and lentil soup, along with a variety of side dishes such as vegetable curries, pickles, and meat dishes. It is a staple food in Nepal and is widely eaten by people of all socio-economic backgrounds throughout the country.

The lentil soup, called dal, is made by boiling split lentils with spices such as cumin, coriander, turmeric, salt and ginger, until they are soft and mushy. It is typically flavored with garlic, onions, and tomatoes, and may be served with a dollop of clarified butter called ghee on top.

The rice, called bhat, is typically steamed and served alongside the dal. It is usually plain white rice, although sometimes it may be mixed with other grains like millet, barley, or corn.

The side dishes that accompany dal bhat can vary depending on the region and season, but typically include a mixture of cooked vegetables like spinach, potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, and green beans. Some versions of dal bhat may also include meat dishes like chicken and mutton.

Newari Khaja Set – The Newari Khaja Set is a traditional meal from the Newar community in Nepal, which is known for its unique cuisine and culture. It is typically served as a platter of different dishes that are eaten together to create a satisfying and flavorful meal.

The Khaja Set typically consists of several small dishes served on a large round platter called a thali. The dishes are usually arranged in a specific order, with each dish having its designated spot on the platter.

  1. Chiura – Beaten or flattened rice that is often eaten as a snack.
  2. Aalu Tama – A curry made with bamboo shoots, potatoes, and black-eyed peas.

Samosas – Vegetable samosas are a popular snack and appetizer in Nepal and other countries in South Asia. They are triangular-shaped pastries that are typically filled with a savory mixture of spiced vegetables like potatoes, peas, onions, and sometimes carrots, cauliflower or other vegetables. The pastry shell is made from a thin layer of dough that is rolled out and folded around the filling, then deep-fried or baked until crispy and golden brown.

Sel Roti – Sel Roti is a traditional Nepali food that is typically made during festivals and special occasions. It is a type of deep-fried rice bread that is similar in appearance to a donut, but with a slightly different texture and flavor.

The main ingredient in Sel Roti is rice flour, which is mixed with water and sugar to form a thick batter. The batter is then poured through a funnel or pitcher into hot oil, creating a circular shape with a hole in the middle. The Sel Roti is deep-fried until it is golden brown on both sides, then removed from the oil and drained on a paper towel.

Dhido – Dhido is a traditional Nepali food that is made by boiling cornmeal or millet flour in water and then forming it into a ball. It is similar to a stiff porridge and has a smooth and sticky texture. Dhido is a staple food in many parts of Nepal, particularly in the rural areas.

Dhido is a nutritious food that provides a good source of carbohydrates and protein. It is also gluten-free, making it a good option for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Dhido is a simple and hearty food that is often served to guests as a sign of hospitality in Nepal.

Thukpa – Thukpa is a traditional noodle soup that is popular in Nepal, particularly in the northern parts of the country where it is a staple food. Thukpa is believed to have originated in Tibet, but it has become a popular dish in many countries, including Nepal.

Thukpa is a hearty soup that is typically made with vegetables, meat, or sometimes seafood. The ingredients can vary depending on the region and the season. Common vegetables used in thukpa include cabbage, carrots, onions, and tomatoes. Meat options may include chicken, beef, pork, or yak, while seafood options may include shrimp or fish.
