Anisha Rauniyar May 8, 2020

The Taste of Terai is complex and distinct from what people in other areas of the world are use to. Diwali in Terai isn’t all about lights and rangoli, it’s about fruit, too. And if the stove is not lite for an evening of festivities, families spend the entire day cooking the delicacies they will eat later in the week. Not only is it a time for communities to meet, but also a moment where everybody is attempting to play and know how to cook. Here are some recipes that Diwali can try to capture some of the many flavors of southern Nepal.
