Rajasthani food is a wide and interesting mish-mash of royal and the local recipes sourced in the limited range ingredients and unique cooking style. The royal recipes are as much a part of the rich legacy of Rajasthan, as their palaces and folklore. Located in the arid regions, Rajasthan may not be blessed with a bounty of ingredients to play around with, but that has never stopped the Rajasthani kitchens to innovate and produce the culinary marvels that has caught the fancy of not just the subcontinent but of the world.
Speaking about their new menu, Chef Prem K Pogakula- Executive Chef The Imperial, New Delhi says, "The cuisine that originated in the state of Royalty engulfing the surrounding regions in India, forms Rajasthani food. The state is famed for its rich regal culture and heritage and continues to fascinate food connoisseurs for its unique and distinct flavours. The arid nature of the region, the extreme climatic conditions, scarcity of water and vegetation has witnessed evolvement of unique cooking styles and food habits of the natives that is noticeably different from other Indian cuisines. The Rajasthanis have moulded their culinary styles in such a way that many of their dishes can be shelved for several days and served without heating. The royal heritage of the region as well as the gastronomic enthusiasm among locals have led to a wide variety of delectable and exquisite Rajasthani dishes starting from main courses to snacks to sweet dishes. Some items like dal aati churma have garnered both national and international popularity among foodies."
