Rajasthani Dishes

RajasthanRajasthan, the desert land famous all over the world for its architectural marvels- its romantic palaces and colourful people is also equally popular for its unique, spicy and varied cuisine. For the royal Rajputs, one of the leading communities of Rajasthan, a meal is never complete without meat. They have mouthwatering dishes smothered in spices and chillies; almonds and cashew nuts like the soolas (grilled meat), Murgh mokul and the venison Kababs. But the Marwaris, another leading community of Rajasthan are strictly vegetarians. They have equally tasty maybe more fiery specialties with whatever ingredients available in the dry land. Minimum use of water and a preference for milk, chhaach (buttermilk) and clarified butter can still be observed. They use dried and powdered lentils, beans from indigenous plants like Gwarphali, kair, sangri and the flours of gehun (wheat), bajra (millet) and makka (corn) liberally to make soft rotis drowned in butter and ghee, kheechra (porridge) and delicacies like ghatte kasubzi, Rajasthani kadhi, and the more popular dal- baati-churma. Various chutneys are made from locally available spices like turmeric, coriander, mint and garlic Besides the spicy ones, Rajasthan has a variety of sweet dishes as well, with specialities from each part like Malpuas from Pushkar,  Ladoos from Jodhpur and Jaisalmer, Ghewar from Jaipur etc.
