It is used as the main curry and served with rice dishes. This is the vegetarian alternative to meat curries and a common dish the people of Sikkim include in their regular meal.


  • Sinki and Gundruk
    If you are one of the vegetarian tourists opting for a North Sikkim tour package and want to treat your taste buds with a famous vegetarian dish of Sikkim, try Gundruk or Sinki. They are generally prepared during the winter months when there is an abundant supply of vegetables. The leaves of cauliflower, mustard and radish are used to make Gundruk and Sinki soup is prepared using radish taproot. The vegetable products are fermented which render the dishes a slight sour taste and let you preserve them for almost a year.
