The cuisine of Rajasthan is as rich and stylish as the destination itself. Almost all the travellers coming to Rajasthan from across the world are curious to taste its mouth-watering cooking delights. The love for food of the Rajasthani people reflects in the wide variety of dishes available here. Cuisine was always a serious business in this land of Rajputs. The previous Raja-Maharajas were very found of food and made sure that the royal kitchens had the best of cooks. For centuries the people of Rajasthan have been using camel milk and lassi (butter milk) in several dishes. The meals are usually accompanied with spicy chutneys made of coriander, garlic, chilli, onion, mint and turmeric. The liberal use of dairy products, millets, gram flour, fruits and vegetables in Rajasthani food make it not only delicious but nutritious as well. The use of desi ghee (clarified butter) in the dishes adds a different flavour to them.

Lal Maans (red meat) and Safed Maans are the two famous non-vegetarian dishes served here. The former is prepared by using several spices and chilies whereas the latter is flavored with almonds, cashew nuts and coconut.
