Gundruk and Sinki are two of the few well known vegetarian dishes of Sikkim. They are soups that are prepared generally during winters when vegetables growth is at its maximum. Gundruk is prepared using leaves of mustard or spinach but Sinki is made just of radish tap root only. Radish is made to ferment, keeping or burying it inside the soil and keeping it for a week or two, wrapped inside a plastic bag, which gives a sour taste later.
