One of the most popular event of the annual Mysuru Dasara celebrations is the Aahara Mela or the Food Fair. Foodies can treat themselves to a wide range of vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisines, ranging from the traditional to the contemporary delights. The highlight of the food fair is the Tribal Food or food from the woods, produced from various tribal hamlets using a variety of roots and tubers grown in the forests, dishes made of green leaves and food items prepared using bamboo shoots. ‘Bamboo Biriyani’ and ‘Bamboo Rice Kheer’ prepared by tribals are usually in great demand. Apart from tribal delicacies, popular dishes such as Vegetable Biriyani, Davangere Benne Dose, Dharwad Peda, Pizza, Chinese dishes, spicy mouthwatering chats and a wide variety of juices and desserts can also be savoured.
