Timmur: Stories and Flavours from Nepal by Prashanta Khanal

About the Book

This cookbook is a celebration of Nepal's rich and diverse culinary cultures. It contains stories and histories of over a hundred different dishes from all around Nepal, including those from the author's childhood.

From the backcover

Like the depth and breadth of timmur's taste and use, Nepal's food culture is deeply complex and diverse. Its richness reflects the country's ethnic and cultural diversity, its varied topography, and its cross-border influences. Unfortunately, Nepali cuisine is often narrowly defined both outside the country and inside, failing to capture the unique culinary heritage of a myriad of ethnicities that call this country home.
This book attempts to introduce, celebrate, and promote the cuisines of various regions and cultures of Nepal. Within these pages are stories and histories of more than a hundred different recipes from across Nepal, including those the author grew up with.

The title of the book, Timmur, is an ingredient that cuts across all Nepali ethnicities. This pepper, from the same family as the Sichuan pepper, grows wild and has been an essential part of Nepali food for centuries, with its unique pepper and citrus flavours. 

The coffee-table book, with excellent illustrations and photographs, documents 125 recipes across the cuisines of the Thakali (originally from Mustang), Newari (Kathmandu Valley), Sherpa, Tamang and Tibetan (Himalayan Frontier region), Rai and Limbu (Nepal’s Eastern hills), Tharu and Maithil (Southern Plains), Magar and Gurung (Gandak region) and food of the Khas (mid-hills of Nepal).
