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.
