The unheard local drinks of india
We love exploring and are more than willing to try local restaurants. We enjoy the local food to the core. Aren’t you bored of ordering the daily beer with your food to complete your meal. How about giving a green signal to the very exclusive drinks made by the natives of that particular land? Well no second thoughts to it.
Let’s do it!!
1. Chhang – Ladakh
Luring barley beer
Imagine yourself in the middle of beautiful from lands with snow-covered hills and chilly air crossing your face Ahhh even the thought is beautiful! now think more and imagine a glass of chhang. Sounds PERFECTO.
Yes, I know you just don’t want to come back now.
2. Po:ro Apong – Assam
Fairy’s breast milk magic to brew beer.
Try a ‘’dude i am high’’ drink in Assam with assamese food and culture, indeed you would ask for cans to bring home.
3. Handia – Jharkhand
Santhalis and Mundas offered it to god.
This beer is also given as a gift to relatives on weddings; take this as a gift to somebody’s. However, try to treat to as a gift and don’t just engulf it all by yourself because you couldn’t resist it. Pheew!
4. Feni – Goa
Cashew nut apples turned into yum spirits.
Thanks to Portugals for bringing cashew nut trees to Goa, well we just made something off the mind and it’s called Feni.
5. Zutho – Nagaland
Japanese sake in this concoction
Too secretive to know, this drink is only limited to the Nagaland as nobody could hack in their procedure of making this rice wine.
6. Kesar Kasturi – Rajasthan
This maharaja drink is made by rajasthanis with more than 22 spices. Can’t even imagine what it would taste like. can you think of it?
7. Mahua – Maharashtra
International scotch fails its essence to this flower miracle
Travelling in Maharashtra, explore this exquisite flowery wine
8. Sekmai Yu – Manipur
Walking, talking and sipping.
Manipuri Segmai people make this rice wine through an arduous procedure.
9. Bangla – West Bengal
Seems like Goddess Kali liked it
It might turn a little dangerous so don’t forget to show any chauvinism and don’t even try to pleas your stomach too much, a glass would be enough. Try with adequate precautions and ‘do not call home’ after drinking this.
10. Lugdi – Himachal Pradesh
Yeh jaani hai dewani has already done the introduction. The all that is left is to try when you reach Manali again next.
P.S- do not try to take up any challenge for who drinks more. Be a little uptight to just trial and have fun.
