Rajasthan Food Festival held at SRM Hotel



SRM Hotel hosted Rajasthan food festival with an array of mouth-drooling dishes by rendering buffet service. Uniform of this food festival was decked up in Rajasthani dress with a 'Traditional Instrumental music'

'Chef on hand' of this festival was S.Ramesh

Rajasthan is culturally enriched in traditions, which reflects the ancient Indian way of life. There is a rich and varied 'Folk Culture' with a highly cultivated classical music and dance embedded in its own distinct style, which is a part of the Rajasthan.
Rajasthan is known for its traditional colorful art block prints, tie, and dye prints.  Zari embroidery seems to be a major export product from Rajasthan. The cuisine of Rajasthan is primarily a vegetarian, which offers a fabulous variety of mouth-watering dishes.  Rajasthani's uses ghee for cooking most of the dishes, They are also well known for its spicy curries and delicious sweets.

The cooking style followed in Rajasthan is based on the natural climatic conditions of the desert land. Rajasthan cooking was influenced by both the war-like lifestyles of its inhabitants and the availability of ingredients in this region. Water Scarcity and fresh green vegetables have all had their effect on the cooking. In their cooking, They prefer to use milk, buttermilk, and butter in large quantities to minimize the amount of water.T he spice content is quite high in comparison to other Indian cuisines. They use dried lentils and beans, which are being obtained from native plants like sangria, which is used extensively in the preparation of Rajasthan dishes. Gram flour is the major ingredient to make ‘Pakodi” and Gatte Ki sabzi.
Desi ghee is one of the most important ingredients for Rajasthanis.


Dal-bati-churma is a complete dish and quite popular in Rajasthan, which is traditionally to serve in a coarse manner.. First, we should mash the baati,then pour pure ghee on the top, which is being served with the daal.
It’s a combination of three different food Daal and churma (sweet ). Dhal is made of lentils and can be a little bit spicy too.  Baati baked or grilled balls of wheat flour dough.  Churma would be sweet, which is made up of wheat flour sugar and dry fruits.  


The main dish is made of buttermilk, gram flour, and various spices. kadhipakori is a great vegetarian dish, It's light and healthy and also a staple dish for the people of Rajasthan. It goes well with steam rice / Plain Rice.


Traditional Rajasthani dish is made up of Besan /Gram flour, Which is cooked in tomato-yogurt gravy.  Basically, a stiff dough of gram flour is made with spices and salt and then one makes a sausage / Kebab shape (Gatta) out of this dough. Then gram flour sausage/kebab is boiled with hot water, Which is being cut into small pieces and fried post boiling. Post that, a nice thick yogurt and spices base gravy is made and then gates’are simmered into the gravy, which goes well with Missi Roti.


Mangodi is a kind of dried condiment and it also remains as a favorite for the people of Rajasthan. It's being prepared either using split green Gram or split Black gram. It's basically a  sun-dried lentil dumpling curry.


This is an awesome meat (Mutton ) dish. It is a mutton curry made of succulent pieces of mutton, Yogurt & also with hot spices such as redchillies, Cumin & Garam masala etc.
This dish is typically very hot and rich in garlic. This gravy may be thick or liquid and is eaten with all kinds of Indian Breads.


Mirchi vada is a spicy Rajasthani snack made of chili (Mirchi) huge thick ones, which is being stuffed with savory potato filling & also served hot with sauce and occasionally with mint and tamarind chutney. A Mirchi vada is a sort of stuffed chili cutlet.


Mawe Ki kachori is a crispy flaky puff pastry, which is being stuffed with mawa (Dry fruits) and dipped in sugar syrup. This is a sweet dish generally consumed as a snack or dessert 

 All these mouth salivating dishes will be appealing to the eyes by kindling the stomach’s hunger and also by tickling the taste buds. The service rendered will make all the hearts delight and also by enriching with the fullness of satisfaction.
