Ker Sangri| Panchkuta ki Saag- Must have Rajasthani Cuisine.
Ker Sangri Kumtha is the Rajasthani cuisine which is world famous when it comes to delectable taste and spices. From the land of maharajas and kings, list of dishes never ends when you talk about this dessertic state. Most of the dishes which comes from the colourful state are dry, due to extreme dry climatic conditions. Famous for rich regal culture and very distinctive compared to other states, Rajasthan food is always famous and favourite among the foodies all over the world.
The first dish which comes to our mind when we talk about the Rajasthani food is Dal, Baati Churma, yes it is the landmark dish of the state, but there is another huge list after this. I wish to bring you most of the dishes thru my kitchen.
The first among them is Ker Sangri ki Saag or some people call it as Panchkuta because other than Ker Sangri we also make it as 5 ingredients Sabzi. Now you will think why I took this recipe.
1) it’s my favourite recipe
2) since ages my grandma used to make it.
3) this is totally travelling friendly Sabzi, which anyone can carry for two days in the airtight box.
4) good for health since doesn’t have any sugar thing in it.
5) only found and grown in Dessert part of Rajasthan.
Rajasthani dishes are moreover dry because of the paucity of water but to compensate water content for the body, buttermilk or daily produce are taken in excess.
Every dish is made in a such a way that water wastage and water consumption in food is less.
Everything is prepared in ghee because ghee is available more than water sometimes in Rajasthan and that’s the bitter true fact.
This Ker Sangri ki Sabzi is made of 2- 5 main ingredients, if you make only of Ker Sangri, we call it as it is. But if I add Goondha, Kumtha and Amboli it makes 5 ingredients aka Panchkutta Sabzi.
Now after a brainstorming informative, let’s head towards the recipe.
