Sometimes I just like to have a dessert 🍮. And this was a good choice for today. I unexpectedly went out for a work. The scorching sun ☀️ makes the town not a friendly place to roam around. So staying home has been my cue for couple of weeks.
The brownie turned out to be good. Not so amazing but the ice cream made it worth the price. This isn’t what you would really like to have it here. But you won’t find good brownies anywhere else too unless you order it from @happily_baked_biratnagar .
Here is the first of the food series I finished this week. I was thinking of creating a sticker pack of these but realized that putting only these food would not be a good idea because there are so many good besides the one which are mainly featured or have gotten popular. So I will keep producing more in between and when I feel that I have a good count of the food that can show the food culture I will produce a sticker packOkie! Introducing the first range of food:
Sel Roti- A somewhat doughnut shaped roundish delicacy made of ground rice. It is fried in oil. It can last up to days.
Chiya-Chai- Tea- I don’t think I need to explain much about this. The way we prepare Chiya is by putting water, milk and the tea powder (patti). We boil them all together, until it boils over the brim and drink it with desired or more sugar.
Phini- The square shared delicacy is a festival roti. It is layered flour and deep fried to get that shape. I do not think this has gotten as famous as the Sel Roti. We were introduced to Phini by our Newar neighbors.
Khapsey- khapsey is a festival delicacy made by Sherpa and Tibetan community made during Lhosar/New Year. It is made of flour, egg, butter and sugar. It is shaped in like twisted knots. It takes a long time to make it, that I know from my friends 😂😂. Yomari- The one shaped like a conch is a Newari delicacy, used to be prepared in festivals. It is made of soft rice and had sugary thick Chaku- Molasses inside. It heats up your body really well because I think the festival falls around the winter time.
Dal-Bhat-Tarkari: The last set is the most popular of the Nepali dishes. Ok not bragging but Thakali community is considered to have the best Dal-Bhat-Tarkari set, which is basically- Lentil-Rice and Vegetables and neat of your choice.
Leave me suggestions if you have any or just more ideas about the food that I painted this week. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Deities and demons — Stories from back home: September marks the month when the dwellers of Kathmandu enjoy the biggest religious street festival of the valley. The skies look clearer post monsoon, the air smells festive and there is that drumming music in every nook and corner of the city. - - - -
The streets become a living history museum and masked dances and drama are performed nightly at street squares busy with crowds pulled from all over the valley! Such is the magic and charisma of this 8-day celebration. - - - -
Although kings and royalties had started the festival somewhere during the 18th century, the inhabitants of this historical valley have always found a way to rely on arts, aesthetics and expressions that exhibit the conundrums that lie within us, whether dark, shady or bright. And so Indrajatra is being celebrated back home like every year. Despite the political hullabaloo and the frustrations people have towards an unaccountable government and despite all the adversities of a dwindling economy and poorer infrastructures, Jatraa/festivals continue to become ways in which a common Nepali exudes her/his emotional resilience!
So it seems, the beauty and the beast dwell together, one has to learn to accept and overcome the demons to embrace the deities.
