This recipe is another example of the spicy side dishes called “achars” which are prevalent in Nepalese cuisine. This version is eaten over boiled potatoes but one can substitute the potato for any vegetables cooked or raw, such as cucumbers, radish, steamed asparagus – even tofu and so on.
I just love homemade Nepalese food and Manju makes some really awesome simple dishes that are easy to replicate in any kitchen. Here is a really easy salad which has a spicy, tangy, roasted sesame dressing.
I love tangy curries which have a nice spicy kick to them. This simple Nepalese potato curry has such a wonderful flavoring with the flavors of mustard oil and yogurt.
If you can’t get mustard oil – its okay – though they are available at any Indian Grocery store. This recipe is so great it will work with just about any oil you use.
