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.
