Gujarat is a region known for its vivid presentation of food and flavours. You will find an ample amount of comfort foods from the region, which are a delight to have any day. However, even if you are eating out at any Gujarati place, you would also come across variations of Kathiawari food. Kathiawar is a peninsula in western Gujarat that is part of the Saurashtra area of the state. The coastline region, like the rest of Gujarat, has a large vegetarian population. However, what sets Kathiawari cuisine apart from Gujarati cuisine is its distinctive use of spices. They not only make the dishes with a lot of spices but also use a generous amount of garlic and onions that gives it an extra zing.
