Chatamari is famous for Newari style pizza filled with varieties of luscious toppings. It has a very thin crust made with rice flour and is specially prepared during festivals and various occasions. Mostly crispy and soft from inside with lots of enjoyable toppings and heavenly flavors, which is mostly served during breakfast.

Chatamari is a very popular snack and looks similar to a crepe. Mostly famous as street food that can be eaten plain or with palatable toppings.

There are different types of Chatamari available i.e. Plain Chatamari, Veg Chatamari (toppings with potato, black-eyed beans, soybean chunks, etc), Mix Chatamari (toppings with buff mince, chicken mince, eggs, potatoes, etc). You can also add some cheese on top for extra flavors but on typical Newari Chatamari cheese is not really preferred.
