India is known as the land of unity in diversity. It has people who come from distinct cultures and with such different ethnicities and is the home of distant foods too. Food is a heavy influencer on culture and it also helps us understand the roots of different cultures in a better way. From Onion halwa to Black rice, here is a list of bizarre foods that are only found in India.
