When you think about India, the first things you think about are: cows, spices and maharajas (maybe not in this order)… And what about food?
Indian cuisine is really tasty and rich. Every dish – even the ones that seem easy to make – is made with many ingredients and hides the incredible skills of the cook who prepares it.
In this post we want to talk about the dish that sums up all the different souls of Rajasthan (India).
We tasted so many dishes more or less spicy but always damnly tasty..
But our experience in Rajasthan could be summed up in the THALI
It’s a unique dish made of rice, papadum, chapati, dahl, vegetables, and a sweet (You can find it for less than 2 euros and one of them is enough for 2 people- it’s easy to find it in local restaurants).
In this dish we found INDIA…
Homemade chapati are made of water and flour. They are easy and genuine but essential with every meal (they are the Indian “cutlery”) and they remind us religion and its rites, so important in every moment of Indian life.
Thali for us is the dish that perfectly represents our experience in Rajasthan.
But Indian cuisine is so rich and various that it’s almost impossible to sum it up in a blog!!
What about your experience? Which dish represents India perfectly? Do you think that every place in the World could be represented by one dish?
