The landlocked nation of Nepal is tucked into the Himalayan mountains between India and China (Tibet). The Nepalese are proud of their time-worn temples, sublime scenery, hiking trails, and a rich and vibrant culture. Their cuisine is surprisingly diverse for such a small country, with influences from Chinese and Indian culinary methods and tastes. In this cookbook, the popular staple daal-baat-tarkaari (rice served with lentils and vegetables) is showcased in all its healthful variations, as are a variety of potato, meat, and fish dishes. With over 350 authentic, easy-to-follow recipes, this is a complete culinary journey with guides to Nepali ingredients and kitchen equipment and planning traditional meals, a Nepali-English glossary of terms, and delightful illustrations by a Nepali artist.
