When I was born in Russia when I first came to Nepal, I did not see any difficulties or mountains that seemed to capture the imagination of every passenger, and no, I did not go to eat. In fact, they dragged me here. You know, the first time that Nepal taught me was six years old, so I'm interested in tourist attractions. Honestly, Nepal did not even care. My mother and at that time her friend went to Nepal for a vacation and visited his aunt (mother's sister), who at that time married Nepali studying in Russia. Even though I have a memory of Nepal I saw in the 1980s, it definitely did not leave me like a meal; because the little that I remember was for the most part not dealing with Himalayas and Pagodas. My mother and I would later migrate to the US to get the true taste of Nepalese food, except for the occasional taste of achharu (spicy Nepalese butter) or somewhat "not the same" alternative Indian meal until I was 24 years old when Nepalese food again excited my memories taste buds.
When I came to Nepal, this time in 2007, it changed a bit. My families saw that there was more traffic now, the feelings were now more overloaded, but the core of Nepal remained the same. I loved it, but I drew the attention of tourists. Nepal is nowadays much more popular than then, and the thriving tourist industry is sadly trying to adapt to the concerns of Western tourists to try something new, in my opinion, concealed the real taste of Nepal by making it too easy to refrain from Nepalese food.
Unlike thousands of others who are now coming to Nepal to experience trekking in the Himalayas, I also dared to do the same. I am convinced that the area I traveled in, the Annapurna Conservation Area, was the most developed hiking trail in Nepal, but I was very postponed by what I saw. Villagers who once served traditional Nepalese food now offer pizza and Cesar salad among other typical Western items to meet the new tastes of an old trekker.
Perhaps my views differ from most, but when I come to the country, I want to experience it the same way the country can offer. People, sights and culture, and certainly those who can achieve the goals above, will get a lot of what's in Nepal, while leaving just so much (justification) on the table.
I have to say that what's really close to my nails on the chalkboard is a terrible tourist. I honestly can not understand how people traveling thousands of miles to Nepal come with such a fear of some travelers that they are likely to be treated with a simple drug on desks or with antibiotics available in Nepal) that they dare not be out of Hyatt's food, they all get lost very much. As diverse as Nepal is culturally, it is equally diverse culinary. I think my aunt gave it the best, "it is likely that the dirrhea received by the passenger comes from Nepalese food, but from tourists who ask for a Nepalese villager to prepare a sponge, sausage and olive pizza."
I do not know about you, but I trust the Nepalese villager to have much more preparation for what he knows best and to eat a day, much more than trying to recreate Western food with broken refrigeration and "unnatural" raw materials to Nepal. Sadly, not everyone thinks like I found myself, traveled to many accused passengers who challenged their way, how they got to run, after spending a hamburger made from imported meat (beef or rather cows are sacred in Nepal) Swiss cheese and lettuce that came to the dining table along the same five-day hike they just passed. The moral story is, I think with my brain, not just my stomach.
The very issue of not consuming an ethnic diet coming from the area would be of little importance if the problems associated with it were limited to frequent breaks in the bathroom for a passing traveler. Nepal is proud of cultural heritage, terrain and scenery, and above all food, but it's an "ecotourist" who comes to Nepal with ideas of keeping everything Nepal and "helping" Nepalese (which is a dubious assertion), often it is about consuming the French salad Fires & Chicken Cesar for a meal that does not fully realize how it has a direct impact on the local economy and the environment.
The special preparation methods needed to prepare these items will certainly consume more fuel in an area where natural gas is often inaccessible. If there is an increased demand for fossil fuels and unusual foods, these materials must be collected or purchased where available, which increases the costs that could eventually penetrate the entire economy.
Sure, that's not the only reason to try Nepalese food. The mere fact that it's delicious has a lot to do with it. With so many attempts, this is in itself a quarrel about why so many people are avoiding.
Nepal between China (Tibet) in the north and India in the south, which is a stopover for thousands of passengers from both regions. The food came with these passengers, and a mixture of strange influences together with local cuisine created a Nepalese menu, but it did not stop there.
If you were to visit a travel site in Nepal, it would undoubtedly be a bit curious about how culturally diverse Nepal is like a country with dozens of ethnic groups, many of whom have their own special foods.
There is Newari, "sukuti", which is excellent before dinner with a snack with drinks that contain crushed dry meat (jerky), ginger, garlic, onion, tomatoes, salt, oil and some crushed green or red peppers heat . A piece in one hand is a bowl like eating peanuts or tokens.
Of course, it seems that every country has a version of this dumpling. Nepal is called mo-mo, it is a juicy, traditionally round shaped stewed must, full of many things from chicken, goat (mutton), buffalo to vegetables and potatoes. Served with a spicy side sauce is a bowl popular among Nepalese and travelers and is offered in what appears to be almost every place to eat.
When you are traveling near rivers and around, you are almost certain to find another delicacy that if found in the west, it will give fish and chips hard competition. This cute snack is a "tareko matza" (bam) eel fish, usually not more than 25 cm (although other uses use much larger specimens) tormented in spices, deep fried and all-day. At first sight, really scary, they are irresistible after the first bite after being immersed in a side dish. The fish are such that there are no unhealthy bones and smaller specimens can be eaten as it is. Bigger, you can easily get rid of the spine by simply pulling peeled and crunchy fish as soon as you cook.
Served with almost all traditional Nepalese meals, Dal Bhat Tarkari is Nepalese. Rice soup is poured on rice and is served with any amount of vegetables or in some situations with some meat. Typically, plant nature, food, high protein content (lentils), carbohydrates and vitamins is an important source of nutrition in Nepal. Ordinary food in Nepal is either Dal Bhat and any number of attachments to spice up the food.
Nepal, just like any other country, is not short on street food, of which the most popular in this case is samossa or panipuri. Samosa is a pyramid dough filled with spicy potato filling and deep fried. Panipuris are ball golf balls, crisp, flowers that are filled with the same potato filling, which after immersion in tasty sauce are consumed whole. Those who are in love with corn can always find baked roasted bits on an open fire, rotating corn grain, and a chubby consistency with a soft core in the kernels, if desired, adjacent to salt and crushed peppers. Also, "chatpate" is a mixture of beans, corn and any other ingredients mixed with spices and lime juice, and ateen of a conical paper cup.
No matter what food they all have in common. Spice! Nepalese chefs like spices, which are more often than not spicy than hot. Of course, heat is never out of the election list. Asian color market in Kathmandu is popular with tourists and photographers for a wide range of spices sold there. Of curry, beans, ginger powder, garlic, caraway, precious saffron, and whatever the heart desires.
Food brings a lot of answers to what culture is. Nepalese food is no different. In his taste, textures and fragrance he carries history, reasons for Nepalese daily life, and many other answers if you should just look. There are festive festive festivities that welcome the monsoon season, and no wonder that when considering a fish farm and the fact that rice is a Nepalese base. Life revolves around food, and cultures are shaped here. If you come to Nepal, immerse yourself, do not be afraid to step out of your shell. Try food that is good.
