Famous Cuisine of Uttarakhand: Mudue ki Roti with Pinalu ki Sabji

Uttarakhand's cuisine is basic yet delicious, much like its people. Kumaon and Garhwal, two separate regions, offer palates of flavourful foods that are also abundant in nutrition. The state's cuisine is carefully selected to not only thrill the taste buds but also to make the most of the resources available.

Whereas considerable effort is taken to incorporate all of the necessary elements to keep one well-prepared for the harsh environment and trails, extra care is also given to retain the appearance and taste of the dishes. The secret to classic Uttarakhand food, which is mainly cooked over a slow fire and consists of lentils, is a well-balanced flavour.

Although Kumaon and Garhwal are divided into various regions, they are united in their cooking styles and ingredient selection. There are also numerous foods that are widespread in both regions but have different names. The culinary habits in the state also change with the seasons; for example, in the winter, Mathir with Til Laddus or Madua Rotis are favoured, and in the summer, Dubkas and Chholia Rotis are favoured.

The main components responsible for the taste and exquisite aroma of Uttarakhand meals are a variety of lentils that are unique to the state and a variety of flours made from barley and buckwheat. Garhwal foods are profoundly connected to its people; the meal is made with just the proper quantity of spices, enticing one to savour it. Garhwali cuisine includes Phanu, Kafuli, Thechwani, Chainsoo, Jholi, Gahat ke Paranthe, Roat, and Baadi. Meanwhile, in Kumaon, the delectable offerings include Aaloo Gutuk, Dubke, Thathwani, Kaapa, Chudkani, Jaula, and Sisunaak Saag.

Side dishes in Uttarakhand are essential and are cooked with great care. Bhangeera ki Chutney, Mooli Thechuwa, and Hara Namak are just a few of the foods that complement the main course meals.
