Cuisine of Rajasthan

My Ranavat lineage originates from the western state of Rajasthan in India. It is a state of beautiful forts, amazing sand dunes and has a rich history of battles fought by Rajputs with the invaders of medieval times who came from modern day Afghanistan, et al. Of course, one of the most fascinating aspect of this state is its food and is something that never fails to mesmerize me. Here I would like to share three videos on the Rajasthani cuisine from a TV series that comes on an Hindi News Channel in India called NDTV India. Now what's special about this TV series, is that the anchor, Vinod Dua, visits small towns and cities across the country and visits the eateries that are popular among the locals and do not necessarily find a place on an average tourist's itinerary. But after watching the episodes, I am sure you will realize that your trip to Rajasthan would be incomplete without visiting one of these eateries in cities such as Jodhpur, Jaipur, Udaipur and Sreenathji:
