Dal Bhat is the most common dish in Nepal and it is eaten twice daily by most of the Nepalese people. Your Nepalese cook will teach you how to make a delicious Dal Bhat that makes you feel like you are in Nepal.

At the same time while he is cooking live for you, you can join him and prepare your own Dal Bhat in your own kitchen. You are going to cook the following: Rice (in Nepal we call this Bhat), Dal Fried (lentil sauce), vegetable curry, chicken curry ( if you like), tomato pickle and pappadum.


  • Cook a tasty Dal Bhat
  • Learn about the Nepalese way of cooking and the ingredients
  • Watch how Ragobur is cooking
  • Make your own Dal Bhaat at the same time
  • Ask your questions directly!

Are virtual tours also weather dependent?
The month of June is the time that every farmer is plowing the field with his oxes and that many ladies go together into the fields to plant the rice. Because this is a live tour outside, every tour takes place at a different spot. If the weather forecast predicts rain, we will have to cancel and rebook the program. Take into account that the data connection in Nepal are vulnerable and sometimes the connection can get lost.
