Gatte ki Sabji

Category: , ,

Rajasthan Food is an experience to be cherished....

Rajasthan is a desert region. The use of milk, curd and buttermilk instead of the water in the gravy is the distinguished feature of Rajasthani cuisine. Due to the less cultivation of leafy green vegetables, lentils, and legumes, Gram flour,bajra ,corn and dried lentils, beans like ker and sangri are the major ingredients here.

The famous Rajasthani food is dal, bati and churma ( dal is lentils; bati is baked wheat ball; and churma is powdered sweetened cereal) and gatte ki sabji. Besides, each region is distinguished by its popular sweet like Mawa Kachori from Jodhpur, Malpuas from Pushkar, Rasagullas from Bikaner, Ghevar from Jaipur, Sohan Halwa from Ajmer, Mawa from Alwar and tilpapadi from Beawar etc. etc.

It is always a pleasure to present a recipe from your native place. The food which you relish the most. Will come up soon with more Rajasthani dishes.
