Just imagine how beautiful the situation would be when I was into the royalties of Rajasthani kitchen where I could get different cuisines to smell, to taste and to see getting things done with such mind blowing aroma in the air. Each and every dish was speaking for its own unique and tantamount taste. It was becoming very difficult for me to make out that, which dish was better than the previous one? The spices they use, the salt and other things, all remain at the higher side of the taste as compared to the spices of the other parts of India. This gives an array to the royal Rajasthani cuisines and make them stand out of the other world.
