Planning a Trip
Traditional dishes are not available at the restaurants as they have not been commercialised. However on a visit to a local village in a remote area one can get a chance to taste such exotic food. All preparation except the pickles and festive ones are low on oil and spices. There are eateries in all cities and towns. Some of the "dhabas" along the highways offer fairly good food although the places may look doubtful. If you are keen about local tastes try out balushais in the small sweetmeat shops. Those travelling in Jharkhand, particularly in winter, may look out for tilkut, a dry sweet savoury.
Most of the popular Indian brands are available in the cities and towns in bars and specified shop. In local parlance these are called foreign liquor, although manufactured in India. There some very popular local drinks, mainly hadia and mahua. Those who are from outside the state and are not used to these are advised not to take these, because they are quite often spurious and lead to unwanted reactions, even fatalities.
