Dhuska Puri - SK Khazana Recipe Card


Bihari cuisine is predominantly vegetarian because the traditional Bihari society, influenced by Buddhist and Hindu values of non-violence, does not eat eggs, chicken, fish and other animal products. However, there is also a section who relish meat and fish dishes which is common due to the number of rivers in Bihar.  Smoked food is one of the most remarkable thing about this cuisine.
