Ram Pulao is a yummy dish made uniquely with boiled & fried besan dumplings cooked in a spicy mix of ghee, spices and green peas & then added to aromatic rice.The combination of flavours is fantastic and blends well to make a scrumptious pulao. Ram Pulao is generally served with chutney or curd.

Gatta is besan dumpling mildly spiced and cooked in boiling water for 10 mins, cooled, cut into cubes and lightly fried in oil. This is generally used in most Rajasthani curries or gravy dishes. Besan (gram flour) plays an important role in traditional Rajasthani cuisine. Besan flour is used for making various vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes as Rajasthan, India is a desert region and they hardly get fresh vegetables or greens to cook. Besan is simple, has a natural, earthy and nutty taste and easy to store. It has a fair period of shell life.

Inspite of the scarcity of fresh vegetables and greens available in this region, Rajasthani cuisine has a wide variety of mouth-watering vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes that are simple to cook although a bit spicy. One needs to have the love and passion for food like a true Rajput to make a delicious Rajasthani dish. Most of the dishes are vegetarian and classic recipes prepared according to their climatic conditions in this region. Ghee is generously used in more quantities in most of their dishes.

Their food is well known for its spicy curries and fabulous variety of lip-smacking vegetarian dishes. Being the desert belt, they prefer to use milk, butter milk and butter in large quantities to minimize the amount of water while cooking food. Dried lentils and beans are extensively used in Rajasthani dishes. Different spices such as coriander, turmeric, garlic and mint are graciously added to their dishes to enhance the taste.

Besan is extensively used in almost every region of India for making savoury and sweet dishes. Often they are included in making of sweet and dessert varieties. It is also used as substitute to make omelette and thickening of stews or kadis. The flour from Besan is widely used for making a large variety of fritters, pakodas or bhajjiyas.
