Spicy Dishes of Rajasthan

The lack of fresh herbs and condiments are the reasons behind the restricted use of these in the Rajasthan cuisines, which sees remarkable use of spices in the dry, powdered form.

Red chilies in Rajasthan are popular all over the world. They are used whole or in the powdered form.

Other commonly used spices are powdered turmeric, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, garlic, dried ginger, nigella seeds, fennel seeds, carom seeds, amchoor, cloves, mustard seeds, asafetida, kasuri methi, cardamom, cinnamon, etc.
