Manipuri Woman makes Naga Food a Rage in Belgium: Lulu’s Tribal Kitchen leaves people hungry for more!

Lulu's Tribal Kitchen serves simple North East Indian food, using authentic spices and condiments she imports from Imphal, Manipur.

Indian food has been a great hit among foreigners since a long time. Whether Indians set up food joints in other countries or foreigners visiting India, in both cases Indian cuisine is drool worthy to them. But it must be noted that most of the food across the borders is North Indian food- butter chickens and dal makhani and chicken tikkas. It is surprising to see how Lulu Pheiga, a woman from the Rongmei Naga tribe of Manipur, has made Naga food a ‘rage’ in Genk, Belgium.

Lulu says to theindiandiaspora.com, “It was only when I went to Delhi to work that I started trying out recipes and started looking out for the right ingredients. I would wait to go home to get the right stuff, or would wait for friends to bring along. Now that I am here, it’s the same story again! So I want to start import of local northeastern herbs which would benefit people who want to explore the cuisine as well as help the local farmers there.”

Food from north-eastern parts of India is also famous all over the nation, especially in North India due to its simplicity and exotic flavours. With the trend of food adaptation and modification or improvisation, authentic Naga food is a unique style of cuisine. Some of them are:

Here is a list of mouth-watering food items that you will find hard to resist!

– Smoked Pork: Meat or pork is hung above a Naga kitchen’s fire for several days until it is crispy on the outside and juicy inside. The food item is usually preferred with rice but you can try it with slices of bread as well.

– Bamboo Steamed Fish: Bamboo is one of the most famous ingredients of Naga food. In Bamboo Steamed Fish, fish is stuffed inside bamboo sticks’ tubes and flavored with light spices and it is cooked in steam. It is then emptied from the bamboo shoot can be eaten with a variety of sauce.

– Eromba: This healthy dish emerges from Manipur. Vegetables are boiled and mixed with smoked or roasted fish, and the fiery flavor of the world’s hottest chilli Raja Mirchi is added. Eromba is to be eaten with rice or Manipur’s millet bread.

The Indian Diaspora Website mentions, Lulu’s primary support is her husband, and the two wish to come up with a restaurant in northeast India that serves Belgium specialty dishes, which sounds like culture exchange at its best! This year in 2016, the couple are planning to visit Nagaland during the infamous Hornbill Festival along with some of their Belgian tourists, in an attempt to show the incredible north-east India is.
