Rice is the staple diet, which is extensively cultivated by all the tribes. It is taken in a boiled form mixed with vegetables, pulses, fish, potatoes, and meat. The people do not use spices. Poultry, pigs, and goats are reared for domestic use. The meat of the mithun is consumed with relish. The tribals also make a light and nourishing drink known commonly as apang (rice beer).
