Jasha Maroo or Bhutanese Mince Meat Curry

Jasha Maroo or Bhutanese Mince Meat Curry

Bhutanese dishes are not as common as Chinese or Thai or Even Burmese food but the food from Bhutan are simple affair that are prepared from fresh local ingredients. The simple people of Bhutan traditionally rear sheep and goats, which provide them with both food and clothing. I had this dish during my first visit to Thimpu, The Capital city of Bhutan. It was served with loads of fried potatoes, steaming fresh rice and a bowl of simple salad made of cucumber, onions and tomatoes.
