Food of Dadra & Nagar Haveli

The food in Dadra and Nagar Haveli is very strongly influenced by neighbouring state Gujarat. Almost always strictly vegetarian, Gujarati cuisine is unlike any other Indian cuisine. The difference lies in the unusual blending of the sweet with the salty into a harmonious whole. The grand spread of Gujarati cuisine can be glimpsed and savoured in the very popular "Gujarati Thali" a large silver platter consisting of innumerable bowls full of vegetable curries, dals or lentil based gravies, a variety of breads, savories - crisp spicy fried farsans, sweetmeats and an amazing range of sweet and sour chutneys and pickles. The entire meal including the vegetables and dals (curried lentils) achieves a delicate balance of flavours - sweet and sour, salty and spicy, crisp and soft, low fat and deep-fried!

Some of the well-known Gujarati delicacies are Paunk (combination of various roasted cereals), kadi (a curry of yogurt and chopped vegetables), khamam dhokla (a salty, sweet-and-sour cake made from chickpea flour), shrikhand (a dessert made from yoghurt spiced with saffron, nuts, cardamom and dry fruit) and doodh pak (a dessert of thick sweetened milk with dry fruit and nuts).

The local liquor is called ‘Tadi’ and is made of ‘Mahua’ flowers.
