The foods of Nepal

Nepal is a country with diverse cultural and geographical features, which is reflected in its food. Nepalese cuisine is influenced by both Indian and Tibetan cuisines, and uses a variety of spices, grains, vegetables, and meats. Some of the most popular dishes in Nepal are:

Dal Bhat: This is the staple meal of Nepal, consisting of lentil soup (dal) and steamed rice (bhat). It is often served with vegetable curry (tarkari), pickles (achar), and sometimes meat or fish. Dal Bhat is eaten twice a day by most Nepalis, and is considered a balanced and nutritious diet.
Momos: These are steamed or fried dumplings filled with minced meat, cheese, or vegetables. They are served with spicy sauces or soups, and are a favorite snack or appetizer. Momos are originally from Tibet, but have become very popular in Nepal and other parts of the Himalayas.
Sel Roti: This is a sweet and crispy ring-shaped bread made from rice flour. It is deep-fried and often eaten with yogurt or vegetables. Sel Roti is a festive food in Nepal, and is prepared during occasions like Tihar and Dashain.
Yomari: This is a dessert made from rice dough and stuffed with a sweet paste of coconut, sesame seeds, and molasses. It is shaped like a fish and steamed. Yomari is a special dish of the Newari people, an indigenous group of Kathmandu valley. It is made only during the festival of Yomari Punhi, which celebrates the end of the rice harvest
