Nepalese Food

July 2023

In World, There Are many foodies who roam around many places to hunt the food Nepal is a country with various authentic foods and is the best palace for foodie people to explore different types of food. There is a conception that Nepalese cuisine is limited to Momos and Thukpa. Nepalese cuisine has many flavours, traditions, and history. The flavours of Nepalese food are heavily affected by its surroundings, which include India, Tibet, and China. While Newari food is popular in metropolitan areas such as Kathmandu, Tibetan Thukpa and beef are specialities in highland regions with little farmland. These meals are not only a part of their regular diet but also play an important role in Nepalese traditional festivals. While there are numerous sites to see in Nepal, the culinary trip is equally fascinating. 

The food to be found in Nepal are as below list:

  • Sel Roti

Sel Roti is a crispy and sweet snack that combines a doughnut with wheat. Sel Roti, a popular Nepalese meal, is prepared during the holy festivals of Tihar and Dashain. The round rice flour bread is deeply fried, giving it a crunchy surface and a soft and doughy middle. It is typically eaten for breakfast with yogurt dipping sauce and vegetables.

  • Gundruk

Gundruk, another popular Nepalese delicacy, is considered the country’s national dish. It is a collection of pickled green-leafy vegetables that are enjoyed as a condiment or side dish with the main course meal. Mustard, radish, and cauliflower are wilted for a day or two before being preserved in a tight ceramic pot, allowing the leaves to emit acidic juices. So it’s basically Nepali kimchi.

  • Yomari

Yomari is a fish-shaped winter snack popular among Nepal’s Newar ethnicity. It is produced with rice dough to combat the cold weather in the mountains. Not only will its unusual shape pique your interest, but a sweet filling is hidden within the dough, making it difficult to refuse for those with a sweet craving.

  • Dal Bhat

Last but not least, Dal Bhat is the soul of Nepal. The delicious lentil curry paired with rice is a country favourite for lunch and dinner. Only after eating the Nepalese Dal Bhat will you realize how something so basic can be so good and soul-filling. On the side, pickles, meats, and yogurt dips are available. There are several variations in different sections of the country, all of which provide a real experience of various tribes and civilizations.


  • Momo

Momo is a beloved Nepali dumpling that has gained popularity both within and outside of Nepal. These bite-sized delicacies are typically filled with a savory mixture of minced meat (such as chicken, pork, or lamb) or vegetables, along with aromatic spices. Steamed or fried, momos are often served with a tangy and spicy dipping sauce, making them a delightful and flavorsome snack or meal option.
