Food in Sikar

The Rajasthani cuisine is famous all over India because of its rich, colorful, spicy curries accompanied by mouth - watering sweet dishes. The food habits and culture is similar in all districts of Rajasthan and their food is a mirror of their rich heritage, wealth and prosperity. 

The reason why their food is unique is because traditionally the people of Sikar had warrior type lifestyles, so they prepared their food in such a way that it could last for several days. Furthermore, due to scarcity of water the food was cooked in milk or yogurt. Sikar, being part of a vast arid land there is always a shortage of green vegetables, so they use different types of local grown berries in their cuisine

Then instead of tomatoes, they used to dried mango powder to sour their dishes.The use of jowar, bajra and gram flour in their cuisine keeps the nourishment value high.So, most of the Rajasthani traditional dishes once cooked can be eaten over a few days and they do not require refrigeration.  

Ghee(Indian clarified butter) is the main ingredient used while preparing most Rajasthani dishes.The most popular vegetarian dishes are Daal-baati-churma and Rajasthani Ker-Sangri-Kumatia (Panchkuta) and non-vegetarian delights are Laal - Maas and Khud - Khargosh while sweet dishes like Ghevar and Mawa Kachori are the most popular sweet dishes.
