Haryana is a Hindu-dominated state that split off from largely Sikh Punjab in 1966. Haryana surrounds Delhi on three sides and is dominated by that city's suburban and commercial sprawl. The remainder of the state is largely agrarian, with few attractions to slow down the passing tourist.
Typical dishes include kadhi pakora, besan masala roti, bajra aloo roti, churma, kheer, bathua raita, methi gajar, singri ki sabzi, and tamatar chutney.
Lassi and sherbet are two popular non-alcoholic beverages in Haryana.
