Food of Dhamtari
Non-vegetarian food is the primary mainstay in Dhamtari. However, millets are another staple that vegans can try. Kosra (a kind of grain like rice), rice, and madiya are preferred by the tribals. Otherwise, do not miss out on paje, a non-alcoholic liquid preparation made from water and small amount of cooked rice, sulphi-intoxic liquor collected from a tall palm like trees, and landa, an alcoholic beverage prepared from water, madiya, rice & corn.
