Well, maybe that is why Rajasthan is a heartthrob for every gastronome.
This cuisine here is a unique blend of sweet and savoury flavours that will leave your mouth drooling and your mind confused. Although there are a variety of spices used in creating these traditional assortments, the dishes do feel light and are very appetizing.
The cuisine in this state is imbued with the war-like lifestyle and limited availability of ingredients. So, what you get mostly are delicacies that last long, can be prepared with little ingredients and sometimes without water. And with the majority of population preaching Hinduism, the traditional food in a local household will always be vegetarian. But if you are assuming that it will be any less on flavour, you are mistaken, my dear friend.

Oh! You are more of a dip/chutney. Well, then you’ve hit the jackpot! As Rajasthan is home to a variety of chutneys that you can take back home if you want. The remembrance of garlic, mint, and coriander chutney is already getting us all slobbery!
Fortunately, the royal house too contributes to the cuisine of this beautiful kingdom. We know you were missing proteins in this section. So, why not add the heavenly laal-maas and safed- maas of the royal platter to the list for tantalizing your taste buds.
More of a sweet tooth? Well, then, Rajasthan is your paradise as it has a long list of sweet dishes. Moreover, you wouldn’t even have heard of these names, we can guarantee. Like, have you ever heard of Balushahi, Besan Chakki, SutarFeni, etc? No, right? But believe us; they taste like little drops from heaven.
