From a country that is known for its diversity and culture, it is a given that one would find hidden gems in its cuisines too. Indian cuisine is as diverse as its culture and states. Don't you think? If on one hand, you have a slightly sweet and subtle Gujarati cuisine, Rajasthani spices are sure to blow your mind on the other. A vast region full of ancient forts and deserts, Rajasthan is a potpourri of flavours which includes fiery meaty delicacies along with a delicious vegetarian fare inspired by the majority of Marwaris inhabiting the region.
Gatta curry might be one of the most popular Rajasthani dishes but there are countless treats that aren't that popular. Sangri Kanda, for instance, is one Rajasthani treat that can add a zing of flavour to your meal in an instant. Sangri are the local beans from Rajasthan and Kanda is onion. This combination of beans and onion with local spices is a stellar one to prepare in a jiffy! Rajasthani delicacies are made with minimal ingredients, depending upon the availability. Sangri is a winter vegetable, however, the dried version of it is available all year round. The recipe uses many local spices such as whole red chillis, which is extensively available in Rajasthan and is the reason why delicacies such as laal maas are unbelievably spicy! Chaas or buttermilk is another very common ingredient in Rajasthan and is also used traditionally in Gatta curry.
