Bhutan - The Only Mild Dish in the Country


After much searching, I found a Bhutanese dish that did not include yak by-products or chili peppers hot enough to melt lead: Veggies Over Rice.

I think it's a winner. Kevin poured hot chili sauce on it first.

Bhutanese Veggies Over Rice

The Rices


Cook together


  • 1 cup rice


  • 1 tsp oil


  • cardamom
In a separate pot, cook together:


  • 1/2 cup rice


  • 4 whole cloves


  • 1/4 tsp tumeric

When they're done, mix them together.



The Veggies



Saute in a little oil: green peas


Saute in a little oil:



  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 5 cloves, whole

  • 1/4 bunch coriander greens

  • 1/4 ginger, ground up with a mortar

  • 1/2 garlic, ground up with mortar

  • cardamom


  • Eggplant, sliced into bitsized chunks


  • Broccoli, bitesized chunks

Remove eggplant and broccoli when they look done. Add potatoes (sliced,
boiled, peeled). Fry until they look brown.


Add into the potato pot:



  • The fried eggplant


  • The fried broccoli


  • The fried peas

Serve veggies over the rice mix.
