We are lucky to be living in a land of such diverse and dynamic cultures, and we should exercise that good fortune by frequently trying our hand at cuisines from across the country. As mentioned earlier, gujarat is the hub of vegetarianism, and this is one of their favourites. Panchamel refers to a practical yet delectable combination of rice with four types of dal. Although it might take some time to wash and chop the veggies, the actual cooking time is not much, thanks to the microwave. Serve hot with ghee, pickles, papad and curds. Close your eyes at the first mouthful and foray to the heart of gujarat.
