The perfect beverage to go with this meal!
Fingers of crispy pan fried potatoes with some green chillies, spices and himalyan seasonings. Almost everyone has one comfort food involving potatoes being fried. I remember this as the one which we always used to munch on when we were kids. Much like french fries, but loads better. My mom's recipe is the best for this, and that's what I am going to follow here. Loads of szchewan pepper corn in this!
The all time favourite! Crispy chicken wings dipped in garlic and soya sauce and glazed to perfection. This really isn't a Nepali original but it's one of the comfort food I just cannot omit. This again is my mom's recipe and was my favorite throughout my childhood and now also. I have had chicken wings in countless places, but it's the addition of some Nepali spices which made it really different. So you can call this Nepali, partially!
Soya beans seasoned with garlic, spring onions and green chillies. Goes perfectly with the beer! One of the most famous dishes from Nepal, it is my personal favourite as well! A little difficult to make, but the freshness of the soyabeans with the veggies makes it a very beautiful dish.
The mother of all momos, dumplings or whatever you want to call it. I present to you the Dapao, giant momos filled to the brim with beef, chicken or veggies. Whatever you desire! This is a very interesting dish as everyone is used to eat momos, but Dapao is something different. The difficulty lies in the process of how to make it retain the huge shape and still not make it taste doughy. I have had it once here in Bangalore but for some reason they were calling it Thai momos!
Crisp patties filled with green vegetables, onion, garlic, and optionally a variety of ground meat. A true delight to the mouth with some beer! This is available in a lot of Tibetan restruant here in Bangalore. But it always tastes a little different over here. What my mom says, the difference is in the seasame seads that we use!
Nothing says warmth and love then a big bowl of thupka; noodel soup made with slow cooking beef or veggies into a delectable broth and covered in freshly boiled noodles. Just like a warm hug! This one dish has its's variation throughout south east Asia and is just gives a whole feeling of warmth and home; really can't explain this!
A refreshing addition to this meal is the salad with mushrooms, brocolli and beans tossed with some oil and seasonings. The perfect accompainment to the hearty thupka and momos.
Ice cream with brownies
