Rajasthan is known for its delicious cuisine, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Jaipur especially is a paradise for those looking to try tantalizing new dishes and experience unusual spice combinations. Dry fruits, spices and yogurt are used in many delicacies and lend themselves to delectable sweet and savory preparations. The sweet dishes are seldom referred to as dessert in Rajasthan, because they are had before, during, and after the meal. A delicious treat! A major staple of the cuisine is gram flour. It is used to make a number of delicacies, including the popular Rajasthani dish of Dal-Bati-Churma—lentils, baked wheat balls and powdered sweetened cereal.
