Pork is a staple item in Meghalaya and mostly cooked with fermented soya beans. Besides rice and pork, locals in this region are also fond of kwai, a local betel nut.

Garos cooking is marked with a generous use of indigenous soda in every dish, whether it is a pork dish or traditional nakham kappa. Khasis are very fond of pork and many times, this is made without oil and spices and prepared with fermented soya beans.

Other than pork, other important dishes that you can try here includes:

Bamboo and herbs: Another popular dish, bamboo shot is very popular in this state. sliced, fermented and sun dried, before it is cooked with ingredients including meat, a Meghalayan version of bamboo shoots also uses several regional herbs , including Jamyrdoh.
