Gujarat is a state of business conscious people and rightly called the Jewel of Western India. The land of Gujarat is a blessed place for foods which are high in nutritive content and are delicious at the same time. The influence of Jain culture and Gandhian principles have rendered the Gujaratis most predominantly vegetarian. But there are also communities where goat, chicken, fish and other seafood are allowed in the state. Each of its complete thali combines various methods of cooking that brings out delicious flavours in food. Roti, at least one dry sabzi, at least one curry, a kadhi, rice, are quintessential portions on a Gujarati thali.
