A soul food in its truest sense, aloo pitika is loved by all of Assam. It is essentially mashed potatoes with mustard oil, onion, coriander, and salt.
This delicacy of the food of Assam is cooked with Ash Gourd (lauki) and is generally cooked on special occasions. The use of whole spices gives it a unique flavor. The curry can be cooked with lentil, sesame, pumpkin and a lot more!
A delicious curry made from raw papaya, pulses, and taro root (arbi) and also with a main non-vegetarian ingredient. All of these are then filtered through dried banana leaves which give it a unique and an unexpectedly refreshing flavor. It is generally eaten with rice during lunch.
The fish curry is made with everything sour and yet it magically turns out to be delicious! The fish is slow cooked in a rich, tangy broth made with tomato, outenga (elephant ear), and lemon.
Delicious sweet and sour chutney made out of ou (elephant apple) and jaggery. The ou is first boiled and then mashed lightly. Then it is sautéed with mustard seeds in slight oil and then the jaggery is added. The dish is then ready as a great compliment to your meal.
