Main diet consists of “rotli” (chapatti) made of flour and “sak” (curry, made of various vegetables). “Rotalo” is sometimes eaten instead of rotli, it is made with bajara flour. “Khichdi” is another popular dish; it is simple to make consisting of rice and lentils, with optional butter/yoghurt/milk. Home made pickles are commonly found in Mer houses. They are made using either chillies, mangoes, carrots and lemon.
