The staple food of Manipur is rice along with fish and vegetables. The Manipuris love fish and their favourite fish is Ngri, which is prepared by fermentation. Other than this variety of fish preparations are savoured here along with potatoes that is included in almost every dish prepared in Manipur.

The people of Manipur like to maintain a kitchen garden where they grow several flavoured herbs and roots that are exclusive to this region including maroi napakpi, awa phadigom, maroi nakuppi, mayang-ton, and toning-khok. The vegetables, mushrooms and herbs grown in Manipur are rare and unique to the state.

Some of their popular dishes include, nga-thongba (fish curry), ooti (a typical Manipuri vegetarian dish), chagem pomba (made with fermented soya, mustard leaves) and Chamthong or kangshoi, which is a stew cooked with seasonal vegetables.
