In the tiny state of Tripura, we now find no less than 19 scheduled Tribes. However, the majority community belongs to the Bengalis & there is also a large component of the Manipuri community. Tripura has an excellent mis of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity & buddhism: followers of all these religions live in peace. Despite 10 tribes being identified, these belong to four communities - Reang, Chakma, Halam & Lusai communities. 

Cuisine

When one thinks of North Eastern cuisine, the momos (steamed) & varieties of noodles come to mind. People of the North East are generally non-vegetarian & their staple diet is rice-steamed & somewhat sticky. Sweetmeat is a speciality of Tripura. For fhish eaters, Tripura is a paradise. Another speciality of the Tripura tribals is the Shidal. A special variety of fish - first cleaned & then stuffed with oil & salt. Then placed in a clay pot, covered & buried for three weeks. After three weeks, the Shidal is ready & sold in the market. To most people in Tripura, no meal is complete without Shidal.
