Nepali Vegetable Curry (Tarkari)

Nepali Vegetable Curry (Tarkari)

The Nepali Vegetable Curry (Tarkari) is served with the National Dish Dal Bhat. The Common Nepali choices are potato (boiled), green beans, cauliflower, cabbage, peas or carrots. But you can be creative and use any kind of vegetables you prefer. We always use the vegetable we have in our own garden. For this recipe we used fresh brussel sprouts! Steaming or boiling helps to slightly pre-cook the vegetables to lessen frying time. Blanch vegetables if boiling to ensure they are not fully cooked.
