           Tripura is one of the ‘Seven Sisters’ states of Northeast India. It  is bordered by the country of Bangladesh on its north, west, south and south eastern side whereas the states of Assam and Mizoram are located in the east and shares a common boundary with Tripura. Tripura shares an international border of 856 kms with Bangladesh. The capital of the state is Agartala. Tripura was given the status of a separate state of the Indian Union on 21st, January 1972. 

          The state of Tripura is well known for its beautiful culture and rich tradition. There are many tribal communities residing in Tripura. The cuisine of Tripura hence represents the food style of the tribal people. The food of Tripura is mainly non vegetarian. One of the most important ingredient of Truipuri cuisine is Berma. It is basically fermented dried puthi fish. It is also used as spices for most of the dishes.  The food of Tripura is made in different cooking methods. Large number of the Tripura cuisine is made without oil. Most of the foods are fermented or smoked. Herbs are used while making the food.  The recipe which I am sharing below is the simple curry made with beans and garlic with out any oil!! Sound very healthy right..
