There is a calmness surrounding the city of Ratlam, historically Ratnapuri. Founded by Captain Borthwick in 1829, it was was one of the first commercial cities established in Central India. Today, it is famous for the simplicity of the people, gold, and Ratlami sev.
Ratlam also houses the famous Kalika Mata Temple, Kharmour Sanctuary, Satrunda Mataji Temple, Kedareshwar Temple, Cactus Gardan Sailana, Jain Tirth, and Hussain Tekri. For natives, every religion or festival is celebrated with zeal. Be it Diwali, Eid, Holi, Karwa Chauth, or Dusshera.
There is a Ratlam namkeen that has placed this humble city on the world map – Ratlami sev. The origin of this savoury dates back to more than 136 years in the Mughal era. The recipe was born out of an emperor’s desire to have sevaiya made of vermicelli. The local tribals prepared it with gram flour instead of wheat flour and called it Bhildi sev. It later became the famous Ratlami sev we relish today.
Apart from this speciality, there are other varieties of sev, gathiya, chiwda, and mixtures to choose from. Each of these will beckon you with its amazing taste and crunchiness. You can order any of these through SaleBhai and experience authentic flavours from this wonderful city of Madhya Pradesh.
