Many varieties of mushrooms can be found in the countryside of Bhutan, which is nestled in the Himalayas and bordered by Tibet, Sikkim, and Bangladesh. This dish combines mushrooms and cheese, usually a yak-milk cheese in Bhutan. Shamu datsi, as this dish is called, is served with rice and makes a nice side vegetable dish with emma datsi.
