Dal Bhaat Rotli Shaak: a feast from Gujarat, India.

In-PersonArts District, Los Angeles Downtown


Pop-up space
Banquet (20+ Guests)
These are Gujarati recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation and cooked by the mothers and grandmothers of our families for many years. Many Gujarati households make these dishes everyday weather they are in India or in a country halfway around the world. Chances are you have not been able to experience this traditional style of eating unless you grew up in or around a Gujarati family. We want to share the tradition with you.

Menu detail

Khichri, Kadhi, and Papad
Small Plate
Khichri is a hearty porridge that is made from rice and moong dal that is often eaten as a comfort food. We use fenugreek seeds and fresh tumeric root to give a very nourishing depth of flavor. Kadhi is a yogurt based soup that lets the bright earthly flavors of fresh curry leaves and cumin seeds shine. Papad is a light paper thin cracker made from lentils and savory spices.
Small Plate
Rotli is a simple flatbread that is rolled very thin and cooked fresh to be torn and eaten with different vegetable shaaks. We make our rotli from scratch and by hand with locally milled Whole Wheat Flour so it is as fresh as possible. It takes a lot of practice to roll these into perfect circles that will puff into paper thin pillows every time. Luckily we have some pros that have been doing this since they were little kids.

Naturally pickled Shallots, Green Mango, and Turmeric Root.
