Chaak Hoa Tann

      
       Manipur is one of the seven states of Northeast India. The state is bound by Nagaland in the north, Mizoram in the south, Assam in the west, and by the borders of the country Burma in the east as well as in the south. The state capital of Manipur is Imphal.

       Manipur before being a part of India, was one of the many hundreds of kingdoms of the south and southeast Asia. The history of Manipur dates back from nearly 3000 B.C.  Manipur also has its own traditional way of living, which is also one of the oldest of the region. Sanamahism was followed by the Meetei community and some related communities of Manipur. Later, it got influenced by Hinduism. Then in the 19th century with the arrival of the British, many tribal people were converted to Christianity.

       Manipuri cuisines are simple, organic and healthy. Dishes are typically spicy foods that use chili pepper rather than garam masalas hence healthy, simple and organic foods. Most of the cuisines doesn't use oil as its ingredients.   The staple diet of Manipur consists of rice, large varieties of leafy vegetables (of both aquatic and terrestrial) and fishes.[1] Manipuris typically raise vegetables in a kitchen garden and rear fishes in small ponds around their house. Since the vegetables are either grown at home or obtained from local markets. The cuisines are very seasonal, each season having its own special vegetables and preparations. The taste is very different from mainland Indian cuisines because of the use of various aromatic herbs and roots that are peculiar to the region.
