Laal Maas

I’m a passionate traveler and as I travel, I look forward to eating the local cuisine. Ask an average foodie to name a few Rajasthani dishes, one of the states of India; he will blur out with the name of the most common dish and that is laal maas. This is one of the iconic dishes of the Rajasthani cuisine. If literally translated it means “Red Meat”. It is characterized by bold red color and a spicy tang. Right from the in-flight menus of the luxury airlines to the menus of five starts, have tasted this “Laal Mass”. I’m more than happy to share the true laal maas recipe from the right interior of Rajasthan.
