More About This Experience

This is the legendary food that Nepalis eat all day all night all year-long. The quintessential staple, this dish comes with rice, lentils soup, curry chicken, cauliflower with potato and a special chutney concoction that will fire up your taste buds. Learn what makes the Nepalis tick through this course! Everyone cooks this staple in their family favored tradition so you might get very different tastes across households! The trick is in the spices and their proportions. Dal Bhat usually comes together with 2 other main dishes, a meat curry and a vegetable dish, usually cauliflower with potatoes. Then you cook the lentils soup with a secret procedure that you'll find out! Finally the chutney made of roasted tomatoes, garlic, coriander is the icing no one goes without!
