Hearty and wholesome, that’s Jaipurian food for you!
If you’re a vegetarian, Jaipur is your paradise, if a carnivore, don’t worry, there’s a lot in store for you too!
Teen Ka Kamaal
Dal-Baati-Churma is the complete meal that’s one of the most popular dishes of Jaipur. Dunk a piece of wheat bread (baati) into lentil curry (dal) laced with ghee (clarified butter), sprinkle some sweet churma and then eat away for a lovely explosion of varied flavours!
Ghevar kay Tevar
This crunchy festive preparation literally disappears in seconds from the shelves of popular sweet shop Laxmi Mishthan Bhandar.
Pyaaz kachoris (onion-stuffed savoury) and Mirchi vada (batter-fried green chillies), washed down with a glass of masala chai are must-haves.
Rajput warriors, known for their military prowess and courage, loved feasting on Laal Maas (Red Meat), named so for the spices and red chilies that coloured and flavoured this iconic Rajasthani dish. For the hardcore non-vegetarian, it’s a must!
