While in exile, the Pandavas were obligated to live incognito for a year. Food-lover at heart, Bheem disguised himself as a chef called Vallabh in the kingdom of Virata during this period. According to one legend, when Vallabh assumed his duties, he didn’t know how to cook so he whipped up a dish with an array of available vegetables that came to be known as Avial. In another story, the King of Travancore hosted a great feast but ran out of food and what was hurriedly cooked together became Avial. Chef Ranveer Brar elaborates on these exciting narratives and on stories of the origins of the term ladoo from Mahabharata as he prepares Avial and Bheem Ka Ladoo in this episode of Raja Rasoi Aur Andaaz Anokha.
