Nepalese Cuisine at Gangtok
I always love to test the taste of new foods, specially local foods of different places. This time when i went to Sikkim there I specially concentrated on local food. Though i visited Sikkim many times and always tried new dishes, this time i tried it in a different way. This time i tried Nepalese cuisine. Nepal is very near to Sikkim, so Sikkimese and Nepalese always exchanges their cultures,foods among themselves.
This time I tried Nepalese ‘Thali’.
This ‘Thali’ was well decorated as you can see from my photo.
First they gave me starter as ‘Dhau’, yogurt in a colourful bowl with a full spoon of clarified butter. Both of these were made from the milk of Yak.
Then the main dish came with various items including –
Tuyu Baji (White rice)
Anchar(Pickle) of Dry fish
Piece of Carrot and cucumber
I tried this dish for the first time. Chicken curry , dal is less spicy but rest of the items were too spicy. Curd was good.
Cost of the food: Rs 300/ (per thali)
Where to eat: Lots of restaurants are there in Gangtok where you will find Nepalese Thali.
So go and test it !!! and send me a feed back 🙂
