Gurkhas bring the food of their childhood to Colchester at the Quayside Bar and Gurkha Restaurant in Haven Road. Nepalese curry is similar to Indian curry but milder. Spices include Gundruk and Sinki which are added to lentils and dried vegetable called Jimbu can be added to rice in winter months to flavour it when it is not possible to grow vegetables. Nepal is set against the backdrop of the Himalayas surrounded by India, China and Tibet. These influences are reflected in the food. Nepalese dishes are generally healthier than most other South Asian cuisine, relying less on using fats and more on chunky vegetables, lean meats, pickled ingredients and salads. Indulge without the guilt!
