Gyakho, a soup made with vegetables and meat, brought to simmer over a charcoal fire; or Pakku, a mutton curry served with rice. Food that is fermented is very much a part of the cuisine of Sikkim. A popular fermented item is the Chhurpi, a dairy product that is fermented and made of cow milk. It has a mild, sour taste and is added to soups and pickles. A usual pairing is Chhurpi with Ningro, a wild fern. And of course, there’s Thupka, a noodle soup with either vegetables or meat and momos with assorted fillings, both of these are popular street food of Baiguney, Sikkim.
