Rajasthan is a dry climate state and so they have less availability of fresh vegetables,hence they use much of flours,grains and pulses.Gram flour is mostly used to make kadi ,subzi and snacks in this hot and dry state. Gatta ki subzi which is made with boiled gram flour dumplings and simmered in yogurt curry is a very popular side dish.
Lots of spices,oil and yogurt is used in Rajasthani cuisine.Use of little extra oil helps to keep the food fresh for long time as Rajasthan is a hot and humid area.This ker sangri ki subzi is also made with generous amount of oil and spices and is very good to carry for traveling as it stays fresh for 2-3 days with out refrigeration
