When in Rome, do as Romans do. And when in Haryana – eat, drink, and love like a Haryanvi. Interestingly, the name Haryana is derived from the Sanskrit words Hari – another name for Vishnu – and ayana meaning home. Haryana then, is the abode of God. This couldn’t have been truer. The green fields of prosperity, the rich Haryana food, the grand celebrations of festivals such as Lohri and Holi, as well as the generosity of its people – are a proof of that.
The cuisine here reflects the good life. Apart from abundance of milk, curd, and ghee, there are some delicious choices that will make you weak in the knees. Bajra or jowar roti with dollops of butter, singri ki sabzi, kadhi with pakoda, dal makhani, and pachranga achaar are just some of them.
Haryana is also a state of immense historical significance. It is here that the battle of Panipat was fought. Kurukshetra – named after king Kuru, the ancestor of Kauravas and Pandavas – is the holy ground where Bhagavad Gita was preached. Hisar is so ancient that it is believed to be home to prehistoric man.
