We are privileged to publish our first e-food guide, “The Himalayan cuisine” on our blog. We have nurtured it with the most sought after recipes of the Himalayan region.
Himachal is famous for its beautiful green valleys, hill stations and charming culture, but its culinary has still not been explored to make its presence felt outside the state. This is our small effort to share the Himalayan delicacies with you all and reveal what had been hidden from the world in the past.
Basically, the idea of a Himachali food guide was born so that the recipes could reach far wide places and now we are happy to say that it is available to you. There are fifteen recipes in the food guide, some are spicy, some are sweet, and others are curries.
It is an enthralling guide and definitely would be very appealing for people who love to experiment and learn new things in culinary.
If anyone faces any difficulty in buying process, he/she can reach us using our e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org , we will help our clients in the best possible way.

The vegetation in Ladakh is only along the marshy areas, stream channels and irrigated land. The reason for reduced flora is the low precipitation in the area and therefore it is also called a cold desert. In the waterless land, the vegetation is mostly succulent but junipers can be found growing in a few wild places of the region.
Along the channels and marshy areas the inhabited vegetation is caraway, mint, sea-buckthorns, stinging nettle etc. A few of them like carway, also called Persian cumin is used in culinary and is added to breads, desserts, pulao, biryani etc. Sea-buckthorn berries are used in varied ways for consumption. Its berries are nutritive and good source of vitamin C.
In the irrigated areas, walnuts, apricots, apple and poplar trees grow well. The black locust and the Himalayan Cypress which is a conifer tree have also been introduced to the region.
