Himalaya Onion is a deciduous bulb that grows to 1.0 meters high by 0.5 meters wide. It grows in Himalayan foothills between 2300-6600 meters. It sports hemispheric umbels of purple flowers. In Nepal, Himalaya onion is often used for cooking, especially for flavoring dal (lintal) boiled legumes.
Rather uniquely, jimbur leaves are usually employed in the dried state and fried in butterfat to develop their flavor.
