OUR ROYAL VEG CUISINE

MARWARI CUISINE

Rajasthani cuisine, is the cuisine of the rugged Rajasthan region in North West India. It was influenced by both the warlike lifestyles of its inhabitants and the availability of ingredients in an arid region.

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. It is also known for its snacks like Bikaneri bhujiaMirchi bada and Pyaaj kachori.

Other famous dishes include Dal Baati, malaidar special lassi (lassi) and Lashun ki chutney (hot garlic paste), Mawa lassi from Jodhpur, Alwar ka mawa, Malpauas from Pushkar and rasgulla from Bikaner, "paniya"and "gheriya" from Mewar.

Originating for the Marwar region of the state is the concept Marwari Bhojnalaya, or vegetarian restaurants, today found in many parts of India, which offer vegetarian food of the Marwari people. The history also has its effect on the diet as the Rajputs preferred majorly a non-vegetarian diet while the Brahmin, Jains, and others preferred a vegetarian diet. So, the state has a myriad of both types of delicacies.

Rajasthan has 74.9% vegetarians, which makes it the most vegetarian state in India.

Known to be the land of Rajputs, there is a heavy influence from the kitchens of the royal Rajputs in the delicacies of the cuisine. Most Rajasthani delights are high on spice quotient and packed with masalas while the desserts are sweet and delectable.

A ROYAL TASTE

There is a magnificent range of Rajasthani vegetarian dishes out there such as dal baati churma, gatte ki sabzi or mirchi vada, Rajasthani cuisine is particularly known for its tempting, fiery lal maas. From Kota's kachoris and Jodhpur's mirchi vadas for breakfast to gatte with bajra roti in main course and Alwar's popular milk cake, Rajasthani food isn't going to disappoint you.

To much surprise, sweets in Rajasthan are not meant for an after-meal affair. Instead they are served along with the main meal. So you can often spot malpuas of Pushkar or Jodhpur's mawa kachoris served along with gatte ki sabzi.

AYURVEDA PRINCIPLES

At Devipur we offer a cuisine that is a blend of Rajasthani , Asian based on  Ayurveda principles.

“In Ayurveda, food is medicine”.

Ayurvedic cuisine aims at including all 6 tastes, called Rasas, in each meal to prevent cravings. These are sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent. Each Dosha should favor those tastes that bring greater balance to the constitution. Therefore all our dishes are categorized per Dosha.

An Ayurvedic diet can help address dosha imbalances and optimize health and well-being. 

Ayurveda is about living in harmony. Eating seasonally and locally, you not only get the most nourishment, but also rekindle your relationship to food and the environment.

Proper combination and selection of ingredients are a critical component of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda’s rules of the kitchen—such as avoiding cold, raw, processed or microwaved foods, not combining fruits with other foods, and making lunch the heaviest meal of the day—can run counter to the typical Western diet, but with time, Ayurvedic cooking can become intuitive.

Cooking with fresh, high-quality and ideally, organic ingredients is key. Food should be prepared soon after purchase and consumed soon after preparation to maximize flavors and nutrition.
