Rajasthan ki Thali

Rajasthan ki Thali is a complete spread of Rajasthani curries, bread and sweets. It is a complete spread from the sandy deserts of Rajasthan.

 

Rajasthan is my neighbouring state and although there are so many cities of this rich, cultural state, we normally travel to Udaipur very regularly. Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Jaipur are the main cities and I simply love to visit them. I love the culture of this state, their food and their colourful dressing.

 

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. As a result, you shall see a lot of dishes which have a good shelf life.

 

I have cooked from this state a number of times, yet every time I plan on a Thali, Rajasthan always ranks at the top. I love their rustic dishes and am always in a quest to find more and more traditional dishes. A few months back we were in Jaisalmer and on my personal request they prepared a very special thali for us. Other than that they gave me live demos of their special dishes.

 

This week you shall see Flatbreads which are special to that state. For this Flatbread Special, I have chosen a menu which has a special flatbread from the colourful, sandy desert, Rajasthan. The Rajasthan ki Thali is my fourth Flatbread Special Thali under the theme Thalis and Platter Festival.

  1. Fantastic spread Vaishali. I seem to end up making Rajasthan or Gujarat in most of my thalis too..though of course, I can never make this huge platter…Enjoyed reading about all the dishes. I made Mirch ke Tipore and loved it too..

  2. I wanted to make one Rajasthani and one Sindhi thali each and even had planned the menu even before this marathon was planned but somehow both of those did not happen. Yours’ is one awesome spread from which I have cooked only a couple. My limit is 10 dishes and I cannot cook more than that even if I call that a thaali. 🙂 Are these biscuit bhakris same as the one made in Gujarat? I had planned those but could not make it and so wondering. Once again, all those dishes sound rustic but must be very delicious.

  3. My Rajasthani did not happen at all. I learned quite a few dishes from my Marwari friend but sadly I couldn’t make it. Hopefully, I can make one by one. Between your Rajasthani thali is so good. I don’t how you managed to make these amazing thalis from all the states. Awesome Vaishali.
