Are you looking for Bikaneri Bhujia in Rajasthan? then to check out this post. Bhujia. The word itself reminds you of the crispy, delicious tasting snacks from Rajasthan.
Bhujia originally originates from a small town of Bikaner in Rajasthan and has grown into popular snacks internationally. This crispy, yellow-ish colored is snack prepared using moth beans and besan (gram flour) and spices. It’s color, taste, and crispiness is all unique and is second to none. A taste of this will unknowingly take you to those colorful, narrow lanes of Bikaner, surrounded by sand dunes and hot weather.
The popularity of this item has put the town on the world map. It has also helped it earn the GI tag which ensures its taste, texture, and quality are not compromised and also ensures that the consumers get the original product straight from trusted manufacturers. This product is synonymous with evening snacks and is now also used to greet guests.
As its popularity has grown enormously, people from other parts of the country have also started making it, but it lacks the unique flavor that it earns from the desert sand surrounding the town. The process of making this mostly starts early morning from 4 AM.
The dough of besan, lentils are mixed and fires are lighted with big frying pans over it having a huge quantity of frying oil. The dough is then made into smaller pieces using some tools and then passed on to the boiling oil. People have also jumped and encashed this opportunity.
From Haldiram’s to Bikaji, all have taken this market to new heights. Their work in this field has made this a truly globalized one. The popularity of these brands can be considered from the fact that they are synonymous with ‘Bhujia’ in India. Other players have also emerged but the enormous popularity and the unique taste that they offer are still enormously popular.
If you still haven’t tasted this, get out to a nearby snacks shop and grab some 🙂
