Gujarati Recipes, dishes

Gujarati recipes, dishes | collection of 750 Gujarati recipes. Gujarat has a wide-ranging cuisine, which includes everything from sweets and snacks to subzis and one-dish meals.

Khaman DhoklaKhaman Dhokla

The farsaans and mishthans especially are much-loved aspects of Gujarati cuisine. It is an amalgam of flavor and mostly vegetarian.

Gujarati Recipes like Khaman Dhokla, Bhatia Kadhi, Dabeli and Patra have an unmatchable and unique regional touch.

Come lunchtime and Gujaratis do not like to settle for anything less than a balanced meal, which they fondly call the “Dal Bhaat Rotli Shaak” combo. But, when in a hurry, one-dish meals like Dal Dhokli will come to your rescue. Let’s talk about the different aspects of the grand Gujarati thali.

Dal Dhokli

It generally consists of rotli (roti)/puri ,dal/kadhi, shaak (subzi) , bhaat (rice), farsaans with a wide range of chutneys, kachumber, homemade athanu (pickles) and finally mishtaan(sweet) to end the meal on a sweet note.

Meals are incomplete without a bowl of curd or glass of buttermilk.

A stack of leftover rotli, rotla, rice or khichdi are transformed into delicious treats like Whole Wheat Roti Chivda, Wagharelo Rotla, Bhaat Na Poodla.

At times of emergency or in a mood to eat something spicy instead of the basic dal-bhaat, this tasty Vagharela Bhaat can be made in a jiffy with a handful of ingredients that are easily available in our kitchen shelves.

Tea-time or Diwali, if the kitchen shelves are not filled with air-tight containers hoarding suka nasta (dry snacks), it’s not a Gujarati house.

Chakli, Chivda, Nimki, Shakarpara, Namkeen Shakarpara, Khakhra, etc. are some jar snacks that come to rescue when hunger strikes. You can even take them to work and relish anytime!

These flatbreads are accompanied with shaak made using vegetables especially local produce,combined with an array of spices, a dash of jaggery or sugar and sometimes tamarind too.

These subzis are tongue-tickling because they believe in balancing the khatash-methash (sour-sweet) flavours and can also, be enhanced by the addition of Gujarati farsaans like muthia, patra and sev.

OondhiyaOondhiya

Gujarati’s believe in eating seasonal vegetables and make elaborate preparations like Oondhiya and Panchkutiyu Shaak with a myriad of native vegetables and special combinations of spices to season them, resulting in homely and satiating dishes.

Dry subzis are generally combined with batata (potato) to make delectable delights like Kobi Batata Nu Shaak, Tendli Batata nu Shaak, Karela Bateta Nu Shaak.

They even eat a lot of kathol (pulses). Khatta Moong/ Sukha Moong on Wednesday and Rasawala Chana on Friday are a fixed menu at my home and I believe it is consumed this frequently in every Gujarati household.

Also, you can add multigrain flour to gehun ka atta and make Multigrain Methi Thepla. As I mentioned earlier, they love seasonal produce , be it vegetables or fruits.

Come summers and most households are seen enjoying keri no ras (aam ras) with garma garam puri or Padvali Roti which is an authentic flatbread made with a pair of the rotis layered for rolling and cooking, in order to make thin rotis that can be cooked perfectly without crisping them on a tava.

Chaas is aptly called a Gujarati’s beer since the meal is incomplete without it. Also, Komal is another refreshing, delightful beverage made by combining curd and coconut milk, mildly spiced with chillies.

They can even be enhanced by substituting/adding vegetables, pulses and various spices to make different preparations. The humble Moong Dal Khichdi is surely my comfort food.
