The famous gujarati ‘ras-puri’ meal is incomplete without fajeto! fajeto cannot be classified as kadhi, dal or subzi… it is a class apart from any other recipe. What else can you expect from a classical preparation of mango juice cooked together with curds, besan and select spices? despite its unique charm and magical taste, fajeto is surprisingly quite light on the stomach!

Mango pulp gives an exotic flavour to the regular besan kadhi. Serve hot with rice, padwali rotlis and subzi.
