I originally hail from Rajasthan and so have a connect with the Rajasthani food and culture. Although we have never stayed in Rajasthan because of my parents job, we used to visit relatives every now and then.
During those visits, we came to know about a lot of Rajasthani dishes which are not very popular outside the state but are very delicious and made in most households. A lot of people are aware of Besan ke gatte, but there is a similar kind of curry made with besan called Ram chane which is not very popular but tastes amazing.
The dough to make Ram chane is similar to that of gatte, but here the dough is broken into small balls which are deep fried and then simmered in a gravy. Here is the recipe to make this Authentic Rajasthani dish.
