Rajasthani food tends to be a bit spicy at times, which is probably why Rajasthanis like to combine sweet and savoury foods, to achieve a balanced effect. Mogar and Chasni Chawal is a fine example of this, wherein spicy moong dal or mogar is eaten along with chasni or sweetened rice. Neither dish would be appealing if served alone, but when served together the fieriness of the mogar is offset by the sweetness of the rice, making both very enjoyable.
