Royal Delight of Rajasthan – Laal Maas

If Rajasthan is a state well known for its monumental forts and palaces, the vibrant desert – it’s cuisine is no less renowned. The ubiquitous ‘Laal Maas’ can make your nose water and get tears from the eyes.

Laal Maas

With the minimum ingredients available in the earlier times, the laal maas is cooked with red chillies and whole spicies, as tomatoes and other vegetables were not native to this land. Inspite of tomatoes, the secret ingredient used by the erstwhile people used to use kachri (a wild variety of cucumber grown in the desert).With the redolent flavor of cloves and other spices, garlic makes into a thick semi dry gravy for the dish.


This legendary red meat curry of Rajasthan which turns to a fiery looking dish is delicately smoked with charcoal to retain the aroma of the delicacy.

So, what are you waiting for? In your next visit to Jaipur, open the doors at Handi and try this succulent Rajasthan dish.


Hot Kashmiri Delight : Rogan Josh

Rogan Josh !! This aromatic lamb curry may be a signature dish of the Himalayan state of Kashmir but it is hot-favorite around the world among non-vegetarians. Brimming with flavors of ginger, fennel and marked by the characteristic brilliant red color, the dish is very fragrant and truly a celebration of all senses.

rogan Josh

It is believed that the roots of the Rogan Josh originated in Persia. It derives its name too from Persian words: Rogan which means “oil” and Josh means “intense heat”. The flavors and style have been brought in to India during the innumerable invasions it went through in the past.

The dish has been adapted to be made in various ways around the world. While any form of meat can be used in preparing it, but the traditional Kashmiri Rogan Josh is made with lamb or goat meat and flavored by the signature spices, such as asafoetida, fennel seeds and the dried ginger powder, along with a variation of combination of cinnamon, cardamom, and clove. Yogurt is added to add the slight tang and texture to the sauce. There are no tomatoes added to the traditional dish; not even to enhance color. Its characteristic brilliant red color traditionally comes from liberal amounts of dried Kashmiri chilies that have been de-seeded to reduce their heat.

Try this delectable aromatic, hot and deeply satiating curry with hot steamed rice or naan at Handi Restaurant, Jaipur, and make delicious memories.
