I always get inquisitive the moment I hear about some new place which I have never been to or the cuisine that I have never heard of. My passion for food doesn’t let me miss an opportunity that allows me to explore new cuisine – be it regional or international.
I got to know that Mandawa, in Rajshthan is going to host a 4 days art and culture festival called TAALBELIA.
They will also showcase the cuisine of Shekhawati which is not familiar to people in Delhi and around.
Do you know that Shekhawati cuisine is one of the rare cuisine where they had Maharaj (cook) who is Brahmin by caste and this meant the food has to be vegetarian and rich too! Well, this isn’t to discriminate against any caste, however some of the beliefs of kitchen and the way it had been pronounced is what I have called out.
While Shekhawati cuisine comes under rajashthani cuisine, however it has its own identity and that’s why this is special.
TaalBellia is a cultural and Art festival that will be organized in Mandawa, Rajasthan, from 26th January to 29th January 2017. Four days, 3 stages and more than 30 acts by some of the prominent artists of our country, is for sure is going to be one of the biggest entertainment extravaganza.
And talking about food, Shekhawati cuisine has some very interesting dishes which you wouldn’t want to miss. Bajre ki kheech (khichdi made from millets), Raabdi kadhi which is only available in these areas, apart from gutte ki sabji, bati and other rajasthani dishes. Since this region is also home of marawaris, the food is very rich, appetizing, fulfilling and absolutely delectable.
Well then, you shouldn’t wit further and block your calendar and head to Mandawa for TAALBELLIA cultural Festival that starts from 26th January.
