One of the essentiarl elements in the Nepalese kitchen is garlic. And they are not shy about using it. They don’t do 1 or 2 cloves, they use whole balls of garlic. And because everyone does, you never hear anyone complaining about garlic.

Moreover, there are some festivals that warrant special eating rules, such as a ban on garlic. One example of this is the prayer period Laxmi Puja. Besides garlic, participants must avoid using onions and various spices during this festival.
