Dhido - Traditional Nepali Food

Dhido is a typical Nepali dish that is commonly served in the country's hilly regions. It is everyday food for many people in rural parts of Nepal which looks like pudding and is eaten with achar and curries. 

This is generally prepared with wheat flour and is considered to be healthy food. Some people also use cornflour or ground grains to make Dhido. Due to the lack of spices in Dhido, it is thought to be tasteless, yet many people enjoy its natural taste. It is light food and also it is long-lasting as people do not feel hungry very soon after eating Dhido. 

Dhido is also considered pure food to be consumed during a fast because it does not require the addition of salt or vegetable oil.
