Eastern Indian Cuisine


Jadoh is a luscious pork and wild rice delicacy of the Khasi tribal people from the eastern Indian state of Meghalaya.

n Khasi language, ‘Ja’ means rice and ‘Doh’ means means meat. Most of Khasi food involve some form of meat with vegetables generally taking a back seat. The style of cooking tends to bring out the real flavour of meat.

In fact, the Jadoh barely uses any spices with just onions, ginger, chilliest and mustard oil. Traditionally the rice is soaked in pork blood and cooked with meat, but modern versions substitute the blood with pork fat.

While it might not sound like it, the Jadoh is quite unlike other rice and meat dishes. It is quite mild and leaves you feeling light in the stomach.
