Chhwelā (Nepalese: छ्वेला) is a typical Newari dish that consists of spiced grilled buffalo meat. Though the dish is traditionally popular with water buffalo meat, nowadays mutton, chicken & duck meat are also being used. Usually eaten with beaten rice, this dish is typically very spicy, hot & mouth watering.
It is considered a necessary part of the diet in festivals among the Newari people along with several other ingredients. It is also an important ingredient of samay baji.
