A land of many identities, traditions, and dialects – Meghalaya’s cultural diversity is best explored through its festivals, historical landmarks, and its delicious cuisines.
The traditional fare of the Khasis consists of wholesome snacks like Ja Shulia or sticky rice, Pu Khlein or fried rice cake, Pu Maloi or steamed rice cake, Pu Sla or rice cake steamed in a leaf, Pu doh or steamed rice cake with pork strips and rice cake. Best with a hot cup of red tea, this is wholesome goodness straight from the hearth.
Phan and Tungtap
Fermented dry fish chutney or Tungtap eaten with boiled potatoes or Phan is a spicy treat enjoyed by young and old. The smokiness of the charred dry fish mixed with onion, dry chili and red chillies balanced with the sweetness of the potatoes adds to the taste of this finger licking goodness.
