Taste of India: Gujarat with Dave - $85pp

Gujarat, which is another coastal state in Western India, is a blend of India, East African, and even Chinese cuisines and techniques. Though Gujarati cuisine is regarded as mostly vegetarian, there is an incorporation of seafood, goat, chicken and eggs seen in some of the dishes coming out of this state. On the vegetarian side of this cuisine, there is a focus on rice, lentils, and pickles (achars), and Sabzi (mixed vegetable dishes) to name a few. There are also two cooking techniques seen in this cuisine that are standouts – dry masala “stirfrys” – dishes that do not have a gravy or sauce and usually served as a side dish and a technique known as Baghar or Tadka which is the frying of (blooming of) whole spices or other aromatics in ghee or oil and either poured on top of or stirred into a completed dish right before serving to create a unique layer of flavor or added to a dish during the middle of the cooking process. This cuisine is typically regarded as sweeter than others (whether savory or sweet dishes) because of the use of jaggery (concentrated date or palm sap)
