Rajasthani cuisine is predominantly vegetarian and dazzling in its variety. In general, Rajasthani dishes are spicy and rich in flavor. Rajasthanis relish ghee, which is an integral part of many of the preparations. The most famous dish would probably be dal-bati - spicy lentils with baked balls of wheat and lots of ghee.
The variety of sweet dishes is also immense, and sweets are relished as much as the spicy curries in Rajasthan. In Rajasthani customs, desserts are had before, during and after the meal.
The festival is on till 30th July, for lunch and dinner, a la carte. Please contact 6666-2323 for further details.
