Chhattisgarh cuisine uses many foods not found in the rest of India, although the staple food is rice, like in much of the country. Many Chhattisgarhi people drink liquor brewed from the a pecil flower Mahwa.The tribal people of the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh eat whatever is available: mushrooms, squirrels , bamboo pickle, bamboo vegetable .The special delicacies like jalebi , petha ,Rakhia badi, khaza , etc. are the famous sweet delectables of the state. I prepared this mouth watering khaza from here and enjoyed the lip smacking sweet of the state. So let’s start the recipe .yum

  1. Last year, I was on an Indian culinary journey trying out at least one or a few recipes from each Indian state. One of the states that I had difficulties finding recipes for online was Chhattisgarh. I eventually found a recipe for bhindi kadhi that was supposed to be a chhattisgarh specialty and made it. I am happy to see another chhattisgarh specialty now. The khaza looks delicious, Sapana :)
