With the beginning of the new year, the whole nation is in a spirit of festivity. And Rajasthan; with its colours, food and music lets you have a unique experience of Makar Sankranti in the state. But what stands out amongst all the festivity is the Rajasthani cuisine that boasts of a never-ending platter with a plethora of dishes. The Rajwadi land of Rajputs is indeed a paradise for foodies out there.
Add these delicacies from the land of the Maharajas to your Makar Sankranti celebrations and your fiesta will be a lip smacking affair to remember.
Dal Bati Churma
This Rajasthani dish needs no introduction. Synonymous with Rajasthan, Dal Bati Churma is popular for its doughy batis along with spicy daal and sweet churma. The batis dipped in ghee makes for an appetizing combination.
This royal dessert is equally royal to tease the taste buds of food connoisseurs. Prepared from besan and dry fruits, Mohan Thal is unique to Rajasthan. The aroma and taste of ghee is just the tip of the iceberg.
One of the most common recipes of the non-vegetarian platter, Laal Maas owes its colour to the red hot chillies. The hot gravy of tomatoes, chillies and sizzling spices is a league of its own.
A snacky delight from the state, Mirchi Bada is the perfect answer to complement evening tea or morning breakfast. These hot and spicy badas are scrumptiously delicious.
Pyaaz Ki Kachori
Pyaaz ki kachori is one fried delight that you must try. The round fluffy kachoris, full of heart melting masalas and golden brown onions are an absolute treat.
The very mention of ghevar lights up the eyes of those with a sweet tooth. This crunchy delight that can be aptly called one of the crown dishes of Rajasthani cuisine is a heaven for all the sweet lovers.
