CUISINES OF NORTHEAST

The north eastern part of India is perhaps the most under estimated region when it comes to food. In reality, the seven sisters have a wide assortment of culinary styles influenced greatly by topography, climate, geographic location, and neighbouring regions. The items are comparatively less spicy than the other parts of the country, but no less tasty. Food is prepared with minimum oil or ghee. Smoked and boiled preparations are also in vogue. Dishes prepared with duck meat, bamboo shoots etc are very much popular in North-East Zone. Smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages are common in both men and women in the hilly states. Each community maintains its own identity and culture of language, art and culinary specialities with their integral traditions forming part of their daily lives. The cuisines of these regions are as varied as the tribes themselves. Food is simple and for the most part non-vegetarian. Their close proximity to China and Burma has played their part in influencing the cuisine.
