Weddings and cuisines have a close connection and specially if it is Marwari wedding. Wedding guests really enjoy a wedding if the food is good and well served. A typical Marwari wedding has a lot traditional Rajasthani cuisines and this makes it unique and different from other weddings. Some people arrange for a special Marwari Food stall at the wedding venue where all kinds of Rajasthani food is served. Some of the wedding guests also specially mention on the Hindu wedding cards about the range of cuisines they have set for the guests in the special attractions column. Some let it remain a secret and do not mention anything of this on the Hindu wedding cards.
There are thousands of foods options which are available all over the country and the taste of these do differ according to the state. There are specific dishes which are linked or are famous to a specific state. Basically there are two major states in India where majority of population is vegetarian these are Rajasthan and Gujarat. If we talk about Rajasthan the food over here is bit spicy but too yummy. The food heavy too as all the preparation is done in ghee, but this ad extra flavor and smell to the food.
In this state whole lot of spices are used in powder form and sil bata is used instead of grinders and mixtures for chopping purposes. This gives a unique taste to the food to which these manually chopped and grinded spices are added. Chutneys are very much preferred along with the food these are basically made up of spices such as mint, onion, garlic and dhaniya.
The food served here is in a traditional village style where mud utensils are used, one thing which will always be there in food is sweets. These sweets doesn’t from a special dish but are a part of their daily meal. There is a huge variety of sweets available among which some are very famous. Most amazing thing about this state is that a new sweet is famous in each city this shows how much the people are fond of sweets over here.
The most famous food is dal, bati and churma accompanied with other vegetables and chutneys. In this churma is a sweet dish and is available in more than 5 varieties. The preparation of this is done on Chuhla i.e. in village style stove rather than gas burners. This food is very heavy as everything is prepared and served with butter and ghee.
One thing which people never forget over here is too respect people; the self service concept is not liked and practiced here. This is believed to be rude and disrespectful. People are made to sit and there will be people to serve them. It is really a wonder to find and relish some of the Rajasthani food at some big fat Marwari wedding. Make sure you taste all the famous sweets of this state.
