In an attempt to highlight the regional culinary experience, the government has created guidelines for organising safe and hygienic food festivals. The guidelines for declaration of clean street food hubs have been framed, including for upgrading the infrastructure of existing food streets of the country, to popularise and promote local and regional cuisines.
According to the Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma, the government is aware that India has a rich culinary heritage. Almost all states have their unique recipes. Most of our traditional food items have evolved over centuries. Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India.
Traditional foods are often based on a holistic approach to nutrition, as required by local people. Such food is prepared with locally available ingredients and found to have its own therapeutic and nutritional benefits.
