S1 E5: Rick Stein arrives in the royal state of Rajasthan, the land of the kings. The majority of Rajasthanis are serious meat eaters with dishes like Junglee Maas, a perfect combination of meat, chillies and spices. Mostly desert, this region is very different from Rick’s next destination, the state of Himachal Pradesh, nestled on the foothills of the Western Himalayas. Here, the locals tend to enjoy a diet of wild herbs, rice and dried pulses. Rick joins local nobility as they host a gathering in their home village and attains an audience with the Dalai Lama. He cooks a Biryani fit for a Rajput banquet and Rajma, a traditional bean dish from Himachal.
