Street food is a really important part of Guwahati’s food culture and if you happen to visit the city, you must try out some of the dishes here. While momos can be found throughout India, in Guwahati you can find different versions of it – fried, steamed or like the traditional dumpling, especially with the chilli dip. Some of the best momos in Guwahati can be found at the Ganeshguri Market. Other street food that you must try would be the jhal muri which is alternatively made with mustard or star fruit called kodoi, luchi which is like puri served hot with veg or non-veg gravy, masor tenga, a kind of fish curry, payash, a rice pudding dessert and of course, the invigorating Assam tea.
