As we know Haryana is a place with abundance of milk & curd but other than these , Haryanvi cuisines, no doubt, are also much popular because of their taste and their link to the land . In Haryana, just like agriculture, people also give importance to its food . Cuisine of any region is linked directly with its culture, simpler the culture simpler its food.Haryana have been retaining simplicity in its cuisine.
Here, varieties of Rotis are available, specially the most common types are rotis made from Wheat and Bajra. In earlier times, people preferred to have nutritious and healthy rotis made from a flour of wheat, gram and barley. But with the passage of time, prices increased and people started preferring comparatively cheaper wheat flour.
People here have a strong belief over home made butter and ghee , they use these liberally in their daily diet. In most of the homes,”nooni or tindi ghee” a homemade fresh butter is churned daily . As a part of their culture, girl’s family give her gifts of ghee (clarified butter), gondh (edible gum), laddus (a sweetmeat made of gram flour) and dry fruits when she becomes a mother. People here also use “Chaaj” or Buttermilk, as an instant cooler for summers. Lassi made from yoghurt is another popular drink, almost a meal in itself. The Haryanvi’s love for lassi can be concluded from the fact that thandai, a sweet, milk based drink is called kachi lassi in Haryana.
