Best of Gujarati food
THE majority of Gujaratis are vegetarians and the climate, beliefs, customs and religious attitudes of that area have influenced their culinary tradition.
Though Gujarat has a wide range of foods, Gujarat Nu Jaman, a new book by Devaki Bubbar, contains a selection of traditional recipes from western and central Gujarat, including the Rann of Kutch.
Gujarat is a product of the synthesis of many culturally diverse strains. Similarly, Gujarati cuisine is a blend of many different flavours and textures.The book has various sections with recipes on snacks, different kinds of vegetable, dal, rice and sweet dishes. One section looks at food for those who are fasting, another details raitas, chutneys and pickles. One section is devoted to home remedies peculiar to the State.
Gujarat Nu Jaman, Devaki Bubbar, BPI (India), Rs. 195.
