Travel & Lifestyle indulges in a lavish Rajasthani feast that delivers the authentic flavours of Rajasthan

The Rasthani Food Festival going on at Kakori, Soaltee Crowne Plaza features true Rajasthani cuisine. Chef Shailendra Singh Rana from Rajasthan brilliantly delivers authentic flavours of Rajasthan with every bite. “Rajasthani cuisine is a mixture of textures and tastes that has the dominance of different spices, dairy products and flour,” describes Rana. According to him, though the spice content of Rajasthani food is quite high in comparison to other Indian cuisines, it is absolutely scrumptious.

The two-week-long festival has a special menu that serves an array of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
