Manipuri Cuisine

Being an amalgam of several ethnic tribes, Manipur has a varied cuisine. It is difficult to set the gastronomy of the people. Predominantly, they are rice eaters with a definite tilt towards meat. They use simply boiled or steamed food with very little cooking oil. No dried spices are used. They add ginger, garlic, and bamboo shoots to their dishes for flavor. Vegetarian thali is very popular here. The eromba is a special fish delicacy of Manipur. It is made of fermented fish and bamboo shoot with chillies, boiled vegetables and potato. The drink, shekmai made in a village with the same name, is a famous country wine of the state.
