All along the basin of the Himalayas, communities across Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, India, and Pakistan co-exist with the Himalayan mountains. Himalayan cuisine, bringing together Nepalese recipes, Tibetan recipes, Indian recipes as well as Pakistani recipes, are as diverse as the people who call the mountains their home. Fertile southern lands are rich with spice-laden foods as a climb up the mountains yields more unforgiving territory. The shift to foods with better shelf lives create a hearty diet rich with butter and meats. Momos, the iconic steaming dumplings made of meat or vegetables, are a classic Himalayan dish. But there's so much more to explore, like Himalayan curries, noodles, and breads. We've rounded up some of our favorite Himalayan recipes here.
