Yomari is derived from two words Yo and mari, where “yo” means “which you like” and “mari” means “bread”. So literally it means bread which you like. Yomari is a rice dumpling with confection of rice-flour dough shaped like fig and filled with “brown cane sugar” or chaku in Newari and “sesame seeds” _____, which is then steamed in a vessel called Potasi. The dough is often stuffed with other fillings like lentil paste, “milk solids” or khuwa Nepali language, or spices as well.
This delicacy is the chief and important item on the menu during the post-harvest celebration of Yomari Punhi, which falls every year in the full moon day of December. There is a reason behind the dish being prepared during winter season as it contents ghee and chaku, the items which is believed to provide heat to our body. Yomari is the chief item on the children’s second-year birthday. Traditionally, on this day, a yomari garland is made for the birthday child and they wear it to show that they are two old years now.
My son’s birthday is coming soon and I will make sure to put a right recipe that we used in my next post. For now enjoy a quick recipe that I found over the internet.
- Rice flour
- Hot water
- Sesame seed
- Khuwa or Milk Solids (Nepalese Dairy product, which looks like Ricotta Cheeze)
- Mix rice flour with hot water and make dough. Cover the dough with a warm and wet cheeze cloth and rest it for 10-15 minutes.
- Apply some oil on your both hands and shape the dough like as shown in picture but make sure that it is hollow.
- Fill it with mixture of sweets, molasses mixed with Sesame seed, khuwa, ground meet, or whatever you like, then close the hole.
- Steam it for 20 min.
- Now it is ready to serve. Enjoy!

There are 330,000,000 Gods and Goddesses in Hindu religion. Amongst all of the Gods, Lord Ganesh is respected and devoted as the first God to be praised. Ganesh is son of the Lord Shiva, the destroyer and God of all Gods. Ganesh is the elephant-headed God of good fortune and success, fond of all the finer things in life. Every God has their own day and people pray and worship them according to their days. Tuesday is Ganesh's day, a good day to start a journey. Represented with his multiple arms, each hand holding a different object, he is one of the most popular Hindu figures.
Ganesh's head was beheaded by the Lord of Death at birth but Parvati, his mother, wild with grief, called on the other Gods to supplant it with that of an elephant. It is believed that she ordered her followers to bring the head of whatever living thing that they find in their way. The first living thing they found was an elephant wandering around so they cut his head off and brought back to Parvati and then it was joined to Ganesh's beheaded body.
Well that is how Ganesh got the elephant head and whenever you see a God with elephant head, remember to pray for success and whenever you start any good thing do remember and worship him before you do anything.

Right as of now, a lot of political issues have been going on in my beloved country Nepal. Nothing is stable and due to disagreements and regular rivalry attacks between our political parties, our country is going backwards in terms of development and our country is going into a devastation and chaos mode. There is no bright future anymore, only false hope and never fulfilling promises. Our new constitution hasn't been written and the due date is 28th of May 2010, which is just a month from today's date. Many political leaders have announced that the constitution couldn’t be written on that day as there are a lot of issues going on with political parties. I don't want to mention the names of the political parties as I don't think any of them are worth taking names for as all of them seem to be working for their own profit rather than thinking of millions of people who are hoping for a change and the political leaders don't understand that they are the hope for the people.
Today, there is a fight going on between each other (political parties) and they don't understand that we are on the same team, have same hope, same mission, same aim, and same purpose "To Build a New Nepal." When will people understand about our common goal and work as a same team? May be that day there will be no more a place called Nepal… Let's hope that day won't come in our lives. Let's give the leaders a chance to think about it and if they don't think they can lead us, it would be better to let others lead the way. Just think that there is a lot to be done and a better nation to build, a Greater New Nepal.
