Do check out Nayna’s space for authentic Gujarati Food, her innovative preparations and the upcoming round up of ‘Flavors Of Gujarat’ which she hosted for the last two months.
Punjab is the state of hearty people where the main source of income is farming. Since their work demands high energy food requirement the people in this state generally go for spicy foods and use oil and ghee to a considerably higher extent. There are no intricate marinades or exotic sauces, but an exuberant use of masalas, with a liberal addition of oil or ghee. Punjabis are big-time food lovers, preferring a wide variety in their menu. They are full of life and their food too reflects this liveliness. Punjabi food forms an important part of the North Indian cuisine, which appeals to the taste of many. Right from the stuffed parathas to makke di roti or from Chhole bhature to Paneer tikkas, this food is loved by all. Providing you some links where you can find more about this cuisine
