Food : - Katni(MP)i cooking was influenced by the war like lifestyle of its inhabitants and the availability or ingredients in this region. Food that could last for several days and could be eaten without heating was preferred, more out of necessity than choice. Scarcity of water, fresh green vegetables have had their effect on cooking. Dried lentils, beans from indigenous plants like sangri, ker etc. are liberally used. Gram flour is a major ingredient here and is used to make some of the delicacies like gatta ki sabzi, pakodi; powdered lentils are usedfor mangodi, papad. Bajra and corn are used all over the state for preparation of rabdi, khichdi and rotis. Various chutney are made from locally available spices like turmeric, coriander, mintand garlic. Perhaps the best known Katni(MP)i food is the combination of dal, bati and churma but for the adventurous traveler, willing to experiment, there is a lot of variety available and in Katni Ghewar is a popular dish.
