Rajasthani Naashta Recipes
More than being part of a cuisine, Naashta can be thought of as part of a region’s culture! From weddings and other social gatherings to mid-day hunger pangs, snacks are indispensable. Tea time is incomplete without dry snacks. There are some snacks which you can make prior consumption and store in air-tight containers. Other than that there are freshly made snacks (farsaan) which can be relished during daily meals! Rajasthan is famous for its innumerable naashta choices, like Kanji Vada, Pyaaz Ki Kochari and Shakarpara.
Kanji Vada is a Rajasthani delicacy of moong dal vadas immersed in tangy mustard flavoured liquid. The 'kanji' or 'rai ka pani' as it is known needs to be prepared a day in advance so that all the flavours mellow down. The vadas are added the following day. Kanji Vada are a popular snack sold on the streets throughout Rajasthan especially during Holi.
Kachori – the list is endless. Pyaaz ki kachori, is a popular local breakfast dish in Rajasthan and sold at most 'namkeen' shops in Rajasthan. It originated in the Jodhpur region. They are crispy, flaky on the outside with an authentic filling of onions and spices in the inside. You can relish it with imli chutney and green chutney!
