Do we need a national food for India ?

food of India





Do you think India really need any national food?My personal opinion is we don't need any national food to divide ourselves.There is multiple of cuisine available in India which maybe separated by Geographical regions. Places  which is close to sea have sea animals in their  dishes, mountainous areas have cuisines rich in fat, both animal and plant based. Equatorial regions have spicy foods, in which various world-famous spices such as Anise, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Cloves, Red Chillies, Saffron, Turmeric. Some of the famous Indian ethenic cuisines are, Achar, Dosa, Idli, Paratha, Biryani, Lassi.












India has no national dish till now

Though India have many popular foods like biryani,khicdi,rice,fish-curry,dal,roti ,here is no food that has been declared to be the official National Dish of India. A national food must be  associated with the country but in India there is no particular food  due to the diversity and variations in regions.In India if  a poll is conducted, people voted for different foods and Different Indians have different opinions concerning what national food should be. Despite all of these we can say, Khichdi is more of a popular comfort food than the national dish of India.



Khichdi is a popular food consumed by a large number of Indians. It is eaten by both rich and poor.  This food is affordable and can be eaten during their prayer and fasting seasons. It's  also eaten by diabetes patients and lactose intolerance. Due to its popularity, Khichdi can  be considered a symbol of national unity and diversity.  Biryani, which is also very famous food  in India, has a Persian touch in it. As a foodie, or even not, what do you think we really need any national food  for us?Let me know your answer in comment section
