Happy “Asthami”

 The eighth day of Dashain is called ‘Asthami’. In Newari culture, we eat “Kuchi bhwey” to mark the day.

Yesterday, we went to my cousin’s (K didi) house and we were so happy to see that they had prepared “Kuchi bhwey”.

It consists of 9 Newari dishes which are

  • Chiura (beaten/flattened rice)
  • Chicken curry
  • Spinach
  • Black eye bean
  • Alu achaar 
  • Chicken Choila
  • Kachi La (lamb dish)
  • Fried soybean
  • Fried Garlic

    Kuchi bhwey

 It was really yummy!!!

Happy dashain!!!
