Gujarati cuisine is a subtle blend of flavours and textures. All the three main regions of Gujarat have their own unique culinary styles. A Guajarati meal served in a thali is an experience by itself. Beginning with cumin spiked buttermilk, followed by fluffy rotis, accompanied by a variety of lentils (kathols), vegetables, curds, pickles, mithais and farsans finished with rice or khichdi. Apart from pampering the palate, it is also a well balanced meal. Most Guajarati recipes were traditionally handed down from mother to daughter and a very few attempts were made to document them.
