Every Nepali who went to college/school in Nepal knows what this recipe is! Chatpate is quick and extremely easy to prepare. It is mainly popular within students for overnight studies. I and my friends used to make this often during our board examinations. Sour, spicy and the fact that it requires no cooking must be the reason for it being so famous. Here you go guys, follow the step by step process to prepare this easy Nepali snack :)

Another authentic recipe from Nepali cuisine! Almost every Nepali around the globe is familiar with this dish because it is so popular in Nepal. I remember my mother pickling radishes and other vegetables often. It used to be delicious!! Since, I do not get to visit home whenever I want and customs do not allow me to bring achar inside the United States, I had to learn to make one. Good thing is we get radishes here and this recipe is super easy to prepare. People have different ways to make this recipe and below is the way I prefer :) Also, if you want something that can be eaten right away. Click here for Radish Peas Salad (Pickle) Recipe.
Super Good >:D<

Another basics of Nepali cuisine! Most of the time due to busy schedule, I end up making easy and everyday Nepali dishes. Not only they are super easy to prepare, they are also so easy to pack and i often end up taking leftover curries to work next day for lunch. Like Lauka and Cauliflower, Black chickpeas curry is quick and simple to cook and also is one of my favorites. I was literally jumping and shouting in Indian store the other day, when I saw Black Chickpeas and while making this curry, I got so many memories associated with my friends and family back home in Nepal :) Happy cooking everyone!!
Good Luck (*)

After cauliflower curry (Recipe), here is another basic yet delicious Lauka (Calabash/Opo-Sqaush) Curry recipe. I prepare lauka in ghee/butter instead of oil because I find it more tastier this way. I also mix potato and green peas in this recipe to make the gravy texture and love it with rice/bread. So, here you go guys, enjoy the step by step process to prepare the very authentic lauka curry.

Friday finally!! Today was a long day at work for me. Tired and exhausted me had no energy to fix anything complicated. So, I decided to make Chicken Chow Mein/Lo Mein (i do not find any difference). Husband was ready to help in chopping vegetables needed for this dish and I was ready for a stir fry. Before, moving to the States, I didn't even know Chow Mein was a Chinese dish =)) I know right! I always thought it was a Nepali dish :) I think it was because we get it every where and is often prepared at households. Whatever, let's get to the point and start cooking!

Today my kitchen was filled with aroma of our national food "Gundruk." Gundruk is a traditional Nepali dish made out of fermented leafy vegetables. It has slightly sour taste and is extremely delicious. Gundruk curry and achar are very popular in almost every region of Nepal. I personally like achar of it, especially when combined bhatmas. Like Masaura (Recipe Here), I had packed some when I was home. Without any further discussions, below are the steps for easy Gundruk achar :) Also, click here for the regular Bhatmas Sadeko Recipe. and click here for Gundruk and Tarul Curry Recipe.
Feeling at Home :x

Masaura is a sun-dried vegetable balls made out of black lentil paste and minced vegetables. Masaura is extremely popular in Nepal and for us who live abroad, it is a once in a while thing. Whenever, I visit Nepal, I always make sure to pack some. Out of so many authentic Nepali dishes, Masaura curry is one of my favorites and I especially enjoy it with plain white rice. If you have Masaura and are wondering how to fix it, below is the step by step process :)
