Shekhawati is a region in Rajasthan which comprises district like  Sikar, Jhunjhunun, alwar, Naguar etc.Shekhawati Region is filled with some must watch havelis which is build by the merchants. The language spoken is same all over rajasthan only some dialect may vary from region to region. Shekhawati region is in the south of rajasthan and cuisine here is very traditional. There are some Shekhawati restaurants which serves only the traditional recipes of their region of course daal baati churma is available all over rajasthan but some curries and sweets are specially made here.Each district in rajasthan has some specialty I remember I childhood days when we went for a food trail and enjoyed Bhujia in Bikaner,pyaz kachori in jodhpur,ghevar in jaipur, Malpuas in pushkar.Coming  to shekhawati region  One such Traditional recipe is Papad Mangodi ki sabzi  which is made with raw papad and mangodi which is moong ki wadi ( sundried  moong dal dumpling) the gravy is made with curd . We make papad saag at home which is very traditional as rajasthan is dry state if green veggies are not available people make this papad sabzi to go with roti. There many varieties this papad sabzi is make papad methi, plain papad sabzi and papad mangodi are some we make at home often.
