The food of this region is primarily vegetarian. The varieties and supply of the vegetable may not be abundant; however, local seasonal vegetables are preferred by the natives. Pulses are very common in the daily cuisine and are taken along with both rice and rotis. Non vegetarian dishes mostly comprise chicken and mutton preparations. Beef is not at all popular as its consumption is forbidden for the Hindus. Pork is also rare here. Ghee or clarified butter is very generously used along with a variety of spices in the local cuisine.
