Jasha Maroo or Maru

Another dish worth tasting would be the Jasha Maroo which is like a spicy stew or curry which is made with diced chicken, onion, garlic, chillies, tomato, ginger and coriander leaves. Ginger gives this dish its essence. It may be served with a generous portion of chicken broth. Beef may also be used in place of chicken. This is usually served with red rice as it is in case of most Bhutanese dishes.


This Bhutanese spicy chicken stew or known as jasha maroo was the first Bhutanese dish I’ve made in my very own kitchen. I’ve figured it’s time for me to explore Bhutan with my taste buds.

I knew very little about Bhutan, let alone its dishes. I’ve learned that Bhutanese cuisine somehow has influences from both India and the Chinese. Looking at map, I’m not surprised because it is nicely sandwiched by India and China.
