Some of the famous dishes include Bhaturu, Babru, Beduan roti,Mithdoo, Seera, Madra,Sepubari, Kadi, Lasurae ki sabji, Bhruni ki sabji, Patrode, etc. In addition to these conventional foods they use many types of uncultivated fruits and vegetables to supplement their diet. Simple indigenous methods are employed for processing and preparing these foods. The ethnic foods of the state not only exhibit a treasure of food heritage but it is an integral component of the state as some of the foods are specially prepared during marriages, local festivals and special occasions.
