Being a vegetarian, it's hard to find good quality home and company in my hometown and majority of places. But Jaipur was an exception.
According to a 2014 survey released by the Registrar General of India, Rajasthan has 74.9% vegetarians, which makes it the most vegetarian state in India. 😋
🌿Rajasthani Thali 🍱
It had Makke Ki Roti, Jeera Rice, Lahsun Ki Chutney, Tinde Ki Sabzi, Gatte Tamatar Ki Sabzi, Dal-Bati, Dahi-Cheeni, Rasgulla.
🌿Punjabi Thali 🍱
I also wanted to try my hands on Punjabj Thali, hence I ordered this. It had Tandoori Roti, Papad, Jeera Rice, Dal Makhani, Paneer Kadhai, Chana Masala, Mix Veg, Dahi and Rasgulla.
I also got to know that Rajasthani cuisine was influenced by both the war-like lifestyles of its inhabitants and the availability of ingredients in this arid region. Food that could last for several days and could be eaten without heating was preferred. Scarcity of water and fresh green vegetables have all had their effect on the cooking.
