Rajasthani food is my love:
You all know that I have a soft corner for all the Rajasthani recipes because my hometown is ‘Jaipur’ — The capital city of the Indian state of Rajasthan.
Historically, Rajasthan has been the land of Kings and queens. Rajasthan is the land of Rajputana. And the literal translation of Rajputana is Royals. Thus, Rajasthan is well known for its royal culture and traditions.
No skepticism that ‘Dal Baati Churma‘ is the king of Rajasthani cuisine. However, this is not the only dish that should occupy your mind and body. In Rajasthani cuisine, there are a countless number of royal delicacies such as:
- Moong Dal Halwa
- Malai Ghevar
- Mishri Mawa
- Pyaaz Ki Kachori
- Mawa Malpua
- Mawa Kachori
- Rajasthani Tamatar Ki Chutney Recipe
During the royal times many years ago, at the times of war when the soldiers faced a lot of antagonistic situations, there was a serious demand for a long-lasting food. Thus, the warlike the lifestyle in Rajasthan gave birth to the dishes which can last for a long time and can be eaten without heating.

Today I am sharing Rajasthani version of Sev Tamatar Ki Sabzi. But Sev Tamatar ki sabzi is also famous in the neighboring Indian states of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. In Gujarati cuisine, this sabji is known as ‘Sev Tamate nu Shaak’. The main difference between Rajasthani and Gujarati sabzi is the heat level. Rajasthani Sev Tamatar sabzi is a bit hotter than Gujarati version of sev tamatar sabzi.
What is Sev?
Sev is spicy and crunchy gram flour noodles. This is a flavorful, spicy, crunchy, crispy and deep-fried snack made using besan and spices.
Sev Tamatar Ki Sabzi is also one of the very popular Rajasthani curries served on the roadside eateries aka Dhabas. At dhabas, they usually serve this sabzi along with some plain roti or tandoori roti.
Some Important Points:
- The version I am sharing today is the onion garlic version, but if you don’t like onion-garlic then you can simply skip the onion-garlic and follow the same steps.
- I have been very fond of ratlami sev / namkeen aka crunchy and spicy noodles made from chickpea flour/gram flour (Besan). So I normally use ratlami Sev for making this sabzi. But you can use any other moti namkeen or bhujia for making this sabzi.
