Coshal Tribal Women Madin Wokring Brass  :- India is unmatched when it comes to kooky cuisine. And if you consider yourself an adventurous eater, there is one dish you really must try: Chapda, an odd chutney consisting of red ants' eggs and a local favourite in Bastar, Chhattisgarh.


Red ant chutney, known as chapda chutney, is thought to be not only nutritious but also a dish that wards against illnesses. Historically, the indigenous people have adjusted and changed their way of life to take advantage of the resources the forest provides. Even how they prepare their meals and their eating habits reflect their way of life.

The people here cherish and are proud of the ‘Chapda Chutney’ Hence, a depiction of the preparation of the chutney by a tribal is presented in the sculpture.
