Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat programme aims to enhance interaction & promote mutual understanding between people of different states/UTs through the concept of state/UT pairing. The initiative was announced by Hon’ble Prime Minister on October 31, 2015 on the occasion of the 140th birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Through this innovative measure, the knowledge of the culture, traditions and practices of different states & UTs will lead to an enhanced understanding and bonding between the states, thereby strengthening the unity and integrity of India.
India is a land with a rich diversity of cuisines. Each state, and even regions within states, have their own distinct style of food preparation. The cuisine of a region depends on its geography, climate, vegetation, nature of agricultural produce and also external influence the region has come under. Today, we find that some regional dishes have gained wide pan Indian popularity. However, there is a wealth of culinary treasure in different parts of our country still hidden from people in other parts of the country.
Nagaland is one such exotic state in India. Chefs in the state can take up the challenge and participate with their recipes.
