Nepalese cuisine refers to the food eaten in Nepal. Nepal’s cultural and geographic diversity has resulted in a variety of cuisines based upon ethnicity and on soil and climate. Dal-bhat-tarkari is eaten throughout Nepal. Dal is a soup made of lentils and spices. This is served over boiled grain, bhat—usually rice but sometimes another grain—with vegetable curry, tarkari. Condiments are usually small amounts of extremely spicy chutney or pickle which can be fresh or fermented. The variety of these is staggering, said to number in the thousands. Other accompaniments may be sliced lemon (nibuwa) or lime (kagati) with fresh green chili (hariyo khursani). Dhindo is a traditional food of Nepal.

Savoring the taste of different food items has been fun for me for since I could remember. I believe that was my first step towards culinary. I never shy out from trying any new dishes and best way to treat my palette was to create new dishes. During my schooling days I took out time to cook with my mother and make alteration to dishes and called it my signature dishes. It was appreciated by my family members and neighbors which encouraged me to go further in this path. I follow a lot of cooking shows and read cook books as inspiration. I now study at the Academy of Culinary Arts a fine place to launch my culinary dream. My aspiration to be a chef is ongoing and I participated in this competition to get inspired by the young chefs who will be there from all around the world.
