The food eaten in Nepal by the entire population or the Nepalese cuisine comprises a variety of food items based on ethnicity and geographical diversity. The universal food of Nepal, regardless of the cultural or geographical location, is Dal-Bhaat-Tarkari. Dal is lentil soup, Bhaat is boiled rice and Tarkari is spiced vegetable curry. Tarkari could be anything seasonal. Other supplementary items with the so-called national dish are achaar or chutney (spicy pickles), nibuwa or kagati (sliced lemon or lime), and hairy khursani (green chilly), and papad (very thin round, crisp flatbread). Most of the population in Nepal, especially in the rural areas, eats universal food twice a day.
When traveling in Nepal, you will find there are plenty of other mouthwatering traditional Nepali dishes. These dishes are generally considered reasonably healthier than the majority of the other south Asian cuisine. The blend of amazing flavors of the lip-smacking food takes the influence from its geographical confidantes such as India, Tibet, and China.
