Mangodi Ki Sabzi

As the Marwari business man settled down in many regions of the country, like Punjab, UP, Mumbai, Pune, Gujarat, Kolkata, Assam, Meghalaya and also abroad to expand his business and trade, he also adopted the regional culture and cuisine. The Marwari vegetarian food again comes in two varieties i.e. the food eaten by the common man that includes use of various spices and herbs and the food of the Marwari Jains that is prepared without using onions, garlic or for that matter any ingredient growing under the soil except for ginger and groundnuts.
Marwari vegetarian cooking has its own unique flavour where the simplest and the most basic of ingredients go into the preparation of most of the dishes. There are some specific reasons for the use of some specific ingredients. The harsh climate plus the non-availability of a lot of ingredients have shaped the traditional cuisine.
