2.Tudkiya Bath

The Himachalis own style food. The origin of this food is from Himachal. This dish is an upgraded style of Dham. As to make a tudkiya bath you have to add all the things in one thing only salty. Then take some mustard oil in the utensil and add some Cuminum to it. Then left it for some time until the Cuminum starts giving a crisping sound. Then add Dham to it then mix it well and finally, you are ready to enjoy the Bath. This is invented by Himachalis to reduce the wastage of food.
