On the extreme west of our vast country lies Rajasthan- a state primarily built on arid land, but with an equally rich and colourful history.
The cuisine of this region is primarily influenced by the availability of ingredients, the biodiversity of the land and its history of being warrior territory.
There is scarcity of water which meant availability of greens and veggies was scarce; while the warrior history lent influence on the food in a way where food could last for days and be eaten without the need of reheating.
More than 70% of Rajasthan is vegetarian, making it the largest vegetarian state in India.
M Café, the all day dining destination at the Marriott Bengaluru Whitefield hotel is hosting a Rajasthani Food Festival.
Curating this festival is Maharaj Bhik Singh, a Rajasthani himself, who helms the region’s cuisine at the Marriott in Jaipur.
The Chef and his retinue of cooks have brought quintessential ingredients from the homeland to ensure the food is as authentic as it can get.
Items like the Laal Maas and the Kair Sangri, both specialties from Rajasthan, have been made with Mathania chilies that impart the heat and the deep red color to the dishes.
Other spectacular items include Dal Baati Churma, Jodhpuri Mirchi Bada, Pithod Ki Subzi, Gatte Ki Subzi, Bajra Roti, Degchi Sula Murgh and more.
To cool down the heat from the Laal Maas, guests can try excuisite desserts like the Ghevar, Rasmalai, Doodh Jalebi(!) and Mawa Kachori.
Also on offer are live counters serving Chaats, Moong Daal Cheela and Tandoori preparations.
Would like to thank Mr.Jayadev Jackie, Chef Mahesh, Maharaj Bhik Singh, Ms. Priyam and their team at the Marriott Bengaluru Whitefield for the invite and for their hospitality.
The festival is open for dinner only. Reservations are recommended and can be made on +918049435000.
