Anecdote : It consists of white rice (bhat) and a bowl of thick soup with lentils (dal). It is accompanied by a vegetable curry (tarkari) and sometimes a mixture of spicy ingredients (achards). The meat is inaccessible and non-traditional, it is generally vegetarian. The proteins present in the lenses, however, make a balanced meal. The Nepalese eat with the right hand, without a spoon or fork. It is often served at will and it is polite to be reused at least once, even if we have hungry anymore.
