The main reason I started sharing recipes through this blog was because basic Nepali food is the most I miss. There are so many vegetables and spices that are not accessible here in the States and therefore its been ages since I haven't had them. When I saw "Rayo ko Saag" in Chinese store the other day, I was literally jumping :D It is one of my favorite kind of greens and it had been seven darn years and finally I found one. Like me, I think "rayo ko saag" is every Nepali's favorite. Here you go everyone, follow the steps below for extremely easy yet very authentic "Rayo ko Saag" curry. Also, you can use any kind of greens as a substitute :)

Around this time in Nepal, with different other varieties of rotis we also make Nimki. This particular one is especially made in Newari community back home. When we go to our elder in Dashain for Tika, we take Nimki with other many different varieties as a gift or koseli. It is also included in goodies for brothers in bhai tika. This was my first attempt and i was very surprised by the fact that how close it was to what we make back home. Writing and sharing recipes has helped me so much with my cooking skills. Follow the steps to treat yourself Nimki roti :) Click here for Khurma/Khajuri Recipe.

Nepali delicacies made especially during festivals requires great amount of cooking skills and special utensils/machines. One of the biggest drawbacks of cooking abroad is that these machines/utensils are not easily accessible or I would say are no where found. So, like they say " where there is a will there is a way", I decided to use whatever ingredients or utensils/machines I have to make one of the most popular delicacies during Dashian and Tihar "Khurma/Khajuri". I used cookie cutter to give it a shape but used exact ingredients as we use back home. And let me tell you this was my first try and the end results of my effort was amazing :) This is indeed a special dish and therefore requires little extra effort but taste my friends are out of this world and just like what we get back home =D> Give it a try!!

I usually grill salmon. Until today, I had not thought of making it differently. The fact that I was tired of eating grilled version, I had to make something else. After moving to AZ, life has been really hectic: traffic, study, work and weather @-) These days I try to fix foods that are easy and quick and barely get any time to get creative in the kitchen :( But today my schedule was little flexible and whenever that happens, I end up creating yummy dishes and today it was delicious Salmon Coconut Curry.

Sagun is included in almost every ritual such as birthday, childbirth, tihar, dashian, and wedding in Newari community of Nepal. Sagun symbolizes best wishes and therefore is considered a blessing from elder before starting anything new in life. Sagun typically includes egg, dried fish, ginger, garlic, and alcohol/yogurt. After moving to the United States, we barely celebrate typical Newari/Nepali cultures however I at least make sure to make Sagun in every birthdays. Since, it was my husband's birthday last week, I had to make Sagun and thought to share recipe with you all. Here you go everyone, enjoy easy Sagun recipe :)

Chicken Choila is one of the most popular posts of my blog. I get several appreciation emails from my readers regarding Chicken Choila Recipe. Back home we mostly made choila from Buffalo Meat and I do not remember eating choila made out of chicken or mutton. The fact that I haven't found Buffalo meat after moving the United States gave me an idea to make choila just out of anything: Soy Chunks Choila for vegetarians (recipe here) and Chicken Choila (recipe here) . Today, I thought of making choila out of Goat Meat (mutton) and I opted for an easy route because I wanted to fix something easy and quick. I was little hesitant at first as I was experimenting the process however the final output was simply awesome and therefore I wanted to share the recipe with you all. Here you go guys, here I present you the easiest Choila recipe :x

This is another version of very popular Chatpate back home and especially found in my hometown Butwal :) I have been to many places in Nepal and have tasted different kinds of Chatpate but nothing was close to the one we used to get in my hometown. Sadly, though I did not see any Chatpate Thela (cart) when I was home last time :( However, good news is that I still remember the taste and it helped me a lot to recreate yummy Batauli ko Chatpate! This was my first try and the result was fantastic. Here you go guys, have a Chatpate weekend. Also, click here for another version of Chatpate recipe.
