Kumauni cuisine is the food of the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand, India. Kumaoni food is very simple and nutritious. It completely suits the hard environment of the Himalayas. Pulses like gehet (or kulath, a local type of bean) are fashioned into different preparations like Bal Mithai[6] ,ras bhaat, chains, faanda and thatwaani. All are unique preparations from the same pulse. Jholi or curry seasoned with curd. Chudkani and Joula made from bhatt pulses. Cereals like Mandua with rice and wheat are popular,

Meat is also prepared but the recipe is quite similar to the way it is prepared in most of North India.[7] Several snack items, breads, dairy products and beverages form the heart of the Kumaoni cuisine which is traditionally eaten in several parts in Uttarakhand.[8]
