We've also launched an off-shoot of the series featuring local chefs cooking up simple dishes in their home or restaurant kitchens.

On Friday, May 22 at 1 p.m. we'll be filming our live with Chef Barkha Limbu Daily of the cheel. She will be making two types of aachar (spicy pickles): classic Nepalese aachar and Burmese kenema aachar. Both are made with tomatoes, onion, garlic, ginger, serrano peppers, cilantro and salt, but using different cooking methods.

Tune in for insights on using aachars to enhance your meals at home, Nepalese flavors, achieving balance when cooking and the art of tempering.
