Gurung Bread (Nepali bread ) 尼泊尔式面包

When i was trekking in Nepal on the last two weeks, at first I didn't know there was such a simple and yummy bread served at the tea house. After i knew this bread, I ordered this gurung bread on every morning at each tea house ( we trekked difference village on each day, so we stayed difference tea house on each night).




I learnt how to make this gurung bread from a friendly Nepali mama at the tea house from Granduk village. According to our guide, this gurung bread is the food for Gurung people, also called Tamu, read more here.

Gurung bread prepared by different tea house that we stayed. Usually they serve with honey or jam. Some menu even has cheese gurung. This bread tasted like Chinese 's Ham Chee Peng .


One of the tea house's kitchen frying Gurung bread for us..

I even bought a rolling pin from Kamantdu Nepal  that used by Nepali kitchen to make gurung bread 

Gurung bread is easy to make with few ingredients that easily found in our kitchen..
