This lifeline of Manipuri cuisine is simplicity on a plate, marked by its piquant flavours and intoxicating aroma.
Manipur offers the greatest variety of dishes among the northeastern states, and its cuisine is spicier and more evolved, with elaborate cooking methods that use considerable oil.
Another thing that sets Manipuri food apart is its sheer number of vegetarian options. This tongue twister is a fish curry that includes fresh bay leaves, onion, cumin, chillies and chives blend in a hot, pasty fish stew boiled with potatoes.
Ngaa atoiba thongba is more a way of cooking fish than a dish itself. The name itself describes the way the fish is cooked. Ngaa means fish and atoiba means disintegrated in Manipuri. So, the fish is subtly broken down in this way of cooking.It tastes best when teamed up with steamed.
