Gujarat has a wide-ranging cuisine, which includes everything from sweets and snacks to subzis and one-dish meals. The farsaans and mishthans especially are much-loved aspects of Gujarati cuisine. Recipes like Oondhiya, Bhatia Kadhi, Khaman Dhokla and Patra have an unmatchable and unique regional touch.

Come lunch time and Gujaratis do not like to settle for anything less than a complete balanced meal, which they fondly call the “Dal Bhaat Rotli Shaak” combo. But, when in a hurry, one-dish meals like Dal Dhokli will come to your rescue. Gujarati cuisine makes use of many native veggies, and also special combinations of spices to season them, resulting in homely and satiating dishes. Some of the dals and subzis have a pleasant sweetness because of the addition of jaggery.

Gujaratis also love to take along satiating foods like Thepla and dry Bateta nu Shaak when they travel. These dishes are prepared such that they can be preserved for a day or sometimes even a week! Let us discover many more such marvels of this cuisine…

A lip-smacking preparation of wholesome urad dal, perked up with calcium-rich curds and pungent ginger, garlic pastes. Although it makes use of minimal ingredients, the Khatta Urad Dal has a distinct, tongue-tickling flavour that you are sure to relish. The highlight of this recipe, as the name suggests, is its sourness, so make sure the curds are sour enough. Serve the Khatta Urad Dal piping hot because cooked urad has a tendency to clump up when left to cool for too long. Add loads of fresh, finely-chopped coriander as it imparts a wonderfully peppy tinge to this sumptuous and protein boosting dal.
A favourite Gujarati 'farsan'. Can also be served as a snack at teatime.
Suggested serving size for 100 calories: 2 khakhras with 1/3 cup of dip whole wheat and dill khakhras become interesting with this deliciously chilled low-fat curd dip enhanced with delectable spices. Prepare in advance, enjoy at leisure.
Shrikhand is a magical transformation of simple curds into a delicacy, by a simple procedure. It involves no cooking and is a standard feature of sunday meals, festive menus as well as faraal foods! things get even easier as it can be made in advance and stored in the freezer for close to 15 days. Use fresh curds for best results.
This recipe is as simple as can be, but tastier than you can ever imagine! Samo Khichdi, a faraali recipe that can be had during fasting days as well, is made by quickly sautéing all the ingredients together and cooking them for less than 10 minutes! Ginger and green chillies give this khichdi an element of spice, while peanuts contribute crunch, flavour and aroma to this delightful dish. Serve the Samo Khichdi immediately, as millet-based dishes sometimes get lumpy on cooling.
Thalipeeth, a sumptuous, traditional Maharashtrian snack, is made in a faraal-friendly way in this recipe. We have used a dough of sabudana and mashed potatoes perked up with peanuts, green chillies and other flavour-givers. When flattened and cooked on a tava, you get a crunchy, tasty and filling Sabudana Thalipeeth. Sure to keep you energised on a fasting day, this Sabudana Thalipeeth is also very tasty despite being sattvik in every way. You can also try other faraal recipes like the Rajgira Paneer Paratha or Potato Khichdi .
