Welcome to the Potbelly's world of Bihari food, a cuisine with a heritage of influences from the Mauryas, Bengal Nawabs, Buddhists, Jains, Turks and Mughals. Our Recipes have been handed down over several generations in our home in Muzzafarpur, characterized by the use of simple ingredients to create dishes that unite smoky aromas with rich rustic flavors. Mustard oil and panchforan (five seed: saunf, sarson, methi, ajwain and mangraila) are trademarks of Bihari cooking, often punctuated by a heady zing of smoked chilies.
All of our Bihari menu items are plated Thali-style; each dish paired with breads and accompaniments to create a complete meal for one person. We hope you enjoy the food as much as we enjoy bringing it to you.
