At the beginning of 2013, I was able to spend some time in Nagaland, a Northeastern province in India.

It was an amazing trip, and this is what I dined on!

Though much of Nagaland food is different from Thai food, some of the chili sauces were very reminiscent of Thai nam prik sauces. A hearty, porky meal indeed!

    This looks great. I spent a week in the Khasi hills of Meghalaya last year and had some fantastic pork stews on rice that resemble this dish. The food was so fascinating because it was a clear extension of Assamese/northern Indian cooking spliced with influences you’d more likely encounter in Thailand or Burma, with some other entirely local uncertainties thrown in for good measure. I remember one dish in specific — a wild rice mix served with chile peppers, pork and pickled vegetables — that had an earthy flavor not unlike the roux used in Southern U.S. kitchens. So unusual and awesome.
