Rajasthani Kadhi, Dal Recipes
Semi-solid or liquid dishes like Kadhi and Dal, made with flours, beaten curds, pulses and lentils, are always served with a meal. It is important to choose the Kadhi or Dal such that it complements the other dishes served in the meal. When in a rush, just a few rotis with dal or a khichdi with kadhi can be served as a complete meal itself. Take your pick from a large variety of Rajasthani Kadhis and Dals, like Dal-Baati-Churma, Rajasthani Pakoda Kadhi, Mangodi ki Dal , etc.
Dal-Baati-Churma three-in-one treat is a typical Rajasthani treat. The Rajasthanis specialise in serving sweet and savoury dishes in combinations that steal the heart and delight the taste buds. A platter of semi-sweet Churma, spicy Dal and deep-fried Baati, is one such traditional combination. Fresh baatis drowned in piping hot dal is a perfect accompaniment for churma.
Due to the dearth of water, they usually substitue the water with curd, buttermilk while cooking. Gatte ki sabzi is a curry made using curd and gram flour dumplings are added to it. The amalgam of spices with curd and the soft dumplings creates a mouth-watering dish that complements both rice and parathas. Also, Rajasthanis make amazing Kadhi variation by adding crispy pakoda to it or deep-fried pithore, try your hands and make this flavorful Pakoda kadhi or pithore kadhi which is an irresistible accompaniment.
Due to the shortage of fresh vegetables and limited options, Rajasthani people often depend upon dals for all the proteins and other nutrients. They generally combine together 2-3 dals or some dal and vegetables and transform into a delicious,nourishing version. Cook up this Mooli moong dal or Palak toovar dal with a tempering of ghee and authentic Rajasthani flavour. Also, you can simply skip the vegetables and combine the dal with an assortment of spices and create finger-licking Dal Banjari , Panchmel Dal or Tangy Green Moong Dal.
