A typical Naga table consists of a meat dish, a boiled vegetable dish or two, rice and a chutney (Tathu). Nagas tend to prefer boiled edible organic leaves. Some common dishes are:
- "fermented bamboo shoot" (made from the tender shoot of the Bamboo tree) with fish and pork.
- axone (soya bean boiled, fermented and either smoked or sun dried) with smoked pork and beef. Smoked meat is produced by keeping the meat above the fire or hanging on the wall of the kitchen for 2 weeks or longer, which could last for the whole year ahead.
- Anishiis fermented yam leaves made into patties and smoked over the fire or sun dried.
