A meal that makes you feel warm and cheerful, it is a classic Meghalayan cuisine item that should be tried at least once. The menu is basic and moderate, but an almost common hint of spice and distinctive ingredients set the Meghalaya dish apart from the rest.
Sakin Gata is a rice cake that will make you smile from the second you eat it. This sweet dish will contain numerous layers of rice and toasted sesame seeds, creating such a wonderful nutty flavour combination that a single bite will be not sufficient for anyone. Sakin Gata is recognized as one of the major prepared foods in a Meghalayan thali.
