Our Gujarati cuisine covers a wide range of rotlis, dal or kadhi, flavoured rice, and shaak/sabzi (a dish made up of several different combinations of vegetables and spices, which may be either spicy or sweet). Our Gujarati thali includes preparations made from pulses or whole beans (called kathor in Gujarati) such as mung, black eyed beans etc., a snack item (farsaan) like dhokla, pathra, samosa etc. and a sweet (mishthaan) like mohanthal, jalebi, doodh pak etc.  Many Gujarati dishes are distinctively sweet, salty, and spicy simultaneously.
