Every good deed and wish in a normal newa household begins with a Sagun. And Sagun isn’t complete without dhau, or yoghurt. And Sagun is given on a Newa family on several occasions like on any auspicious day, birthdays, weddings and so on. Perhaps this is why Juju dhau has such a strong presence in the newa living series.
Juju Dhau is more akin to potatoes in that it complements other newari dishes. Because it complements foods such as Chatamari, Bara, Yomari, and even Samyabaji. You are free to eat whatever food you like with Juju dhau. And, of course, it can also be served as a dessert.
But, Juju dhau not only represents the essence culture of the Newa community and a sweet dessert but also represents Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur and Juju dhau always complement each other. Whenever we talk about Bhaktapur, we remember Juju dhau and whenever we think about having the best curd, Juju dhau, we remember Bhaktapur.
While we are so immersed in Juju dhau, we brought a special trip for all the Juju dhau appreciators. If any of you want to know how juju dhau of Bhaktapur is made, then, we have a perfect trip for you. This one-day trip will start at Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Or you can skip the tour of Bhaktapur Durbar Square if you have already been to Bhaktapur or just want to experience the juju dhau-making process. But, we suggest you have sightseeing in Bhaktapur city as well.
There is a series of processes followed by the maker of the juju dhau. You will get to experience and learn all about them on this tour.
