Rajasthan- Royal Place, Royal Food #Celebrating India

Rajasthan is globally known for its tradition, ethnicity, and culture. The Land of warriors is also known for its rich cuisine which includes both vegetarian and nonvegetarian dishes. Vegetarian food is most preferred as most of the area is inhabited by Marwaris. Some of the well-known dishes are Dal Baati Churma, Laal Maas, Kachori, Ghevar, etc.

Geographically, Rajasthan falls in a dry area. So less water is used in food preparation and is substituted by dairy products like milk, curd etc. This addition of the dairy products adds to the creamy texture of the dishes. Ghee is the mainstay in Rajasthani cuisine. In Nonveg dishes, goat and chicken meat, as well as hare and wild boar meat, is used. Tempting sweet dishes are served with the main meal.
