Dried maize (vaimim tawl) is another diet of the Hmar tribe


Dried Maize: In earlier times, maize along with rice was widely used by the Hmar tribals. The tender maize also forms an important diet. The matured ones are dried and kept for the dry winter months of December to February. Different varieties of maize are cultivated by the Hmar farmers, but the best variety is the ‘Mimhnak’ (sticky and with a sweet aroma).
