The Flavours of Madhya Pradesh
Mughalai influences dominate the rich cuisine of this part of India.
by Rekha Guruswamy
Madhya Pradesh offers a potpourri of culinary treats adapted from the cultural mix of the neighbouring states it borders. Wheat and meat dominate the northern and western regions, while the people of the south and east prefer rice and fish. Poha is a flat and dry form of dehusked, raw and beaten rice commonly prepared in Maharashtra with light seasonings. The Madhya Pradeshi natives generously sprinkle this with some Ratlami Sev, a locally prepared snack made from chickpea flour and eaten with other chaats. Poha is served with fat, juicy Jalebis for breakfast in this part of India.
