Haryana – The Land of Rotis

The cuisine of Haryana is as simple as the culture of the land itself. The people here can't resist the hot steaming rotis that are nutritious and delicious as well. Since the state produces a lot of milk, the delicacies here mostly contain milk and milk products.

Haryanvis are those who enjoy simple and nutritional food when compared to the junk food that the metro cities are stuffed with. Some of the common delicacies of the state are lassi, Kachri ki Sabzi, Mixed Dal and Methi Ghajjar.
