An ancient Sanskrit
Uttare maansbhak-shanam, dakshine matule kanya
The blood sausage called Lohange or Limte is prepared differently here and has rice mix taste.
Wetlands are gifts of nature for the region, Fish in some of these are worshipped, and in some eaten. Waters, here, are known world over for exellent catches of Mahseer and Rainbow trout variety of fish. Lately, man made reservoirs for river valley projects have vastly enhanced the potential of pisciculture. Majority of cooks here have not tried to marry the flavours of fish with available spices and have restricted themselves to fish fingers, fried fish or cutlets.
