Some of them include Soya Keema Kulche, Keema and Sprouts Parathas, Makke Dee Roti Sarso Da Saag, Kaathi and Paneer Chicken Rolls, Mithila Ka Litti Chokha, Punjabi Lassi and Chhach, Appam Stew, Kanjivaram Idli, Poori Masala Dosa and Surat Ke Besan Wale Cheele.

He further said that in this festival, the most popular street cuisines of different states are being prepared by the expert chefs of the hotel. The street dishes, which are considered as the identity of every state, have been included in this fest.
