Vegetable Market Thimphu

Chiles are ubiquitous in Bhutanese cuisine. Rather than a role as condiment, chiles are given center stage, dominating various dishes as well as the masochistic taste buds of foreign tourists.

The Bhutanese do buy and sell food products other than chiles, even if nowhere to be found outside the vegetable market.
