Taste of Jodhpur
October 15, 2023
We Present to you – MANUHAAR – The art of Hospitality in the Western State of Rajasthan, India.
Home to the desert lands, this state has some of the most interesting dishes in the Indian cuisine. What’s amazing is that the availability of more grains and less vegetables in the region yielded creativity of the native people to use the available resources and hence the cuisine of Rajasthan was created. Within the state, there are regions that have variations in their cuisine. In this event, we pick a beautiful city of Rajasthan – Jodhpur. Because of the grand success of our previous Jodhpuri Thali event, we are hosting another one, this time with a little menu difference from the last time.
The people of Rajasthan are well known to be the most hospitable people in India. With the belief that your Guest is your God (Atithi Devo Bhava in Sanskrit), they leave no stone unturned to stick to what they are best known for – Food and hospitality.
We invite you to experience this culinary journey with us to discover the cuisine of Jodhpur, and discover how a simple humble meal made at every home in Rajasthan can stir emotions for anyone who experiences it.
You will be dining in the home of the founder of Tasty Talks, Manasi and this will be a collaborative dinner in which during the First One hour will be spent cooking together by everyone. While most of the preparations will be done before hand, we will be finishing up some of the dishes together which will give the guests an opportunity to break the ice and know each other.
On the menu, we have an authentic Jodhpuri Thali with elements of Jodhpuri home, street and festive cooking.
KACHORI – Savory Rajasthani pastry stuffed with spiced lentils, a culinary delight
MIRCHI VADA – A delicious street dish, you have bell peppers stuffed with spiced potatoes, dipped in chickpea flour and deep fried.
