5. Red Ant Chutney
Everyone knows but chili sauce made from red ants, few people dare to try. After the ants were caught, they were sent to the kitchen to be crushed in a pestle and mortar with chili, ginger, and salt. So we have a paste mixture called red ant chili sauce. Local tribes loved this chili sauce. It is said to has a rich flavor and healthy taste because the red ant’s body contains high levels of formic acid.
6. Benami Kheer
Kheer is a favorite dessert pudding in India but this Benami Kheer has garlic as its main ingredient. Crushed garlic that is cooked for many hours in milk brings an attractive flavor that only a few of us can feel. If you don’t mind the bad smell that garlics bring to you, then try it!
