Choila is one of the most popular foods served on the streets of Nepal. It is especially popular in the capital city of Kathmandu and Palpa.
Choila can be prepared with chicken, duck, mutton, or lamb. Vegans can enjoy a delicious choila prepared with jackfruit.
This Nepalese dish is popular among home cooks and restaurant chefs, as well as in small eateries. It can also be served as a snack together with alcoholic beverages. In Nepal, choila is considered by many a delicacy.
I love this combination of mustard oil, raw garlic, raw ginger, open fire meat, fresh lemon, and fresh coriander.
How to make duck choila?
- Cut the duck breast in small cubes and marinate it with salt and vegetable oil.
