POPTI - HARVEST FESTIVAL OF "VAAL"
Date: December till Mid March
Camping with POPTI
POPTI - The celebration of the harvest of beans that we call ‘Vaal’ !!
POPTI a unique dish made during the harvest festival of beans . The dish is made in an earthen pot with onions, eggs, chicken , chilly powder & beans . The pot is further stuffed with the leaves up to its neck. Then it is placed in the fire created by lighting the dry leaves and wood in and around the farm.
POPTI is never eaten alone, its always for a party!!! The pot is kept in the center and everyone sits around the pot warming themselves idyllically in the warmth of the now dying embers of the fire on which the Popti was cooked.
Come and enjoy this traditional delicacy before the POPTI season ends.
