India is a gastronomic paradise because of the wide variety of different and diverse cuisines it offers. Everywhere you go in this nation, you're sure to be amazed by the depth of regional variety. Social media has developed into a virtual repository of exquisite foods and culinary methods created by gifted home chefs and cooks across India. Each of them is a marvel of authenticity and flavour, from the mouthwatering Chettinad delicacies to the beautiful Kashmiri food. Temjen Imna, a minister for Nagaland, recently offered a recipe for a savoury stew from his home state on Twitter, displaying the nation's abundance of delectable foods. Don't miss out on this one!

Nagaland tourism shared a recipe video that caught the attention of Temjen Imna, who in turn retweeted it for his followers to see. The recipe was for a wholesome vegetable stew called hansuli, consisting of boiled tomatoes, potatoes, and fermented fish. The addition of oyster mushrooms, ginger, green chillies, and xanthoxylem leaves adds a unique twist to the stew.

"Interested in trying it out? Do note the recipe," Temjen Imna tweeted, expressing his gratitude to the video's creator, Etsoyu. The minister praised him for promoting authentic Naga dishes and creating such tantalising content on social media platforms. A perfect example of the state's culinary prowess, hansuli is a lip-smacking dish with distinctive flavours from the state of Nagaland. The dish is slow-cooked to perfection, allowing the flavours to meld together and create a taste explosion that is hard to forget.

What makes the stew stand out is the use of several greens, including beans, pumpkin leaves, and gourd, which add a crunch and a whole lot of nutrients to the dish, making it all the more delicious. The dish is usually served with a side of steamed rice or bread and is a favourite among locals and visitors.
