ABOUT Rajasthani Thali RECIPE

Rajasthani cooking was influenced by both the war-like lifestyles of its habitants and the availability of ingredients in this arid region. Food that could last for several days and could be eaten without heating was preferred by them. Their food cooked in pure ghee is famous for it's mouth- watering aroma. Rajasthan's tastiest curries are based on the use of pulses or gram flour. Dry fruits, spices and yogurt are used in many delicacies. Rajasthan can also boast of a vast array of savouries and sun-dried snacks. Be it dal baati and churma or missi roti , one always ends up licking his fingers.
