A traditional Gujarati thali.

Gujarat is known to be one of the few alcohol-free states in the country. However, the flavourful cuisine will keep your taste buds engaged through your sober days here. Primarily a vegetarian state, a standard ‘thali’ (meal) here consists of rotis, dal, rice and a vegetable curry. The street food like the theplas, khandvis, fafdas and jalebis are an explosion of flavours in ones’ mouth.

Apart from the local cuisine and the street food, one can find various high-end restaurants in cities like Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar, Bhuj and Gandhinagar, which serve cuisines from all over the world. However, the street food at Manak Chowk and Law Garden area is soul-filling.
