Rice is the obvious staple for many Nepalese dishes, and in a similar fashion to many other Asian countries. The fried rice dish of Pulao (also know as Pilaf and Pilau) is popular with locals and visitors. Vegetable pulao in particular can be found throughout Nepal, and consists of fried rice with vegetables which have been lightly seasoned with turmeric and cumin. Accompaniments to the dish can vary from yoghurt to papadams, and the subtle flavors brought out by the fragrant rice has caused the dish to become a regular feature at social events and times of celebration within the country.
