The ancient princely state of Rajasthan gave rise to a royal cuisine. The food cooked in pure ghee (clarified butter) is famous for its mouth- watering aroma. Rajasthan's tastiest curries are based on the use of pulses or gram flour, dry fruits, spices and yogurt. Rajasthan also boast of a vast array of savories and sun-dried snacks. A favorite sweet dish called lapsi is prepared with broken wheat (dalia) sauteed in ghee and sweetened. Besides, each region is distinguished by its popular sweet - Mawa Kachori from Jodhpur, Alwar ka Mawa, Malpuas from Pushkar, Rasogullas from Bikaner, Ghevar from Jaipur to name a few.
