1. Rabarri :

cream of milk boiled and condensed without use of any sugar. Some time Jaggery/Gur is used to sweeten it

2. Kali Dal :

There is nothing more comforting or delicious than a nice simmering cup of kali dal. I cant remember a single Diwali , our Indian festival of lights, that has gone by in our house when we havent made Kali dal. There are so many ways to make this dish but I really love the way we make it in my mothers kitchen! We dont put any of the butter and cream that makes this dal so heavy

3. Dahi vada :

Dahi vada (also known as Dahi Bhalla in Punjabi and Urdu, Thayir Vadai in Tamil, Thayir Vada in Malayalam, Perugu Vada in Telugu, Mosaru Vade in Kannada, Dahi Bara in Oriya and Doi Bora in Bengali) is an Indian chaat, prepared by soaking vadas in thick dahi (yogurt).[citation needed] The hot deep fried vadas are first put in water and then transferred to thick beaten yogurt. For best results, the vadas are soaked for at least a couple of hours before serving. To add more flavor, they may be topped with coriander or mint leaves, chili powder, crushed black pepper, chaat masala, cumin, shredded coconut, green chilis or boondi. Sweeter curd is preferred in some places in India, especially in Maharashtra and Gujarat, although the garnishing remains the same. A combination of coriander and tamarind chutneys are often used as garnishments in addition to those mentioned above.

4. Rice :

Rice is the seed of the monocot plants Oryza sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza glaberrima (African rice). As a cereal grain, it is the most widely consumed staple food for a large part of the worlds human population, especially in Asia. It is the grain with the second-highest worldwide production, after corn, according to data for Oryza sativa with small wind pollinated flowers Since a large portion of maize crops are grown for purposes other than human consumption, rice is the most important grain with regard to human nutrition and caloric intake, providing more than one fifth of the calories consumed worldwide by humans.
