Jaipur EATenery…Post 34


Jaipur is known for its spicy, rich and exotic cuisine. Food is something to look forward when you are traveling in and around Jaipur. So on my trip to Jaipur last week I had the much drooled about delicacies:

Lassi: A must try if you happen to visit Jaipur or are staying there. Nice, yogurty, fresh lassi served in terracotta cups (I loved them) which give a red-earth taste. Make sure that you go the original Lassiwala at Shop No. 312, MI Road. All in all, a mouth-watering specialty without  which your EATenery to Jaipur would be incomplete.

Pyaaz Ki Kachori: Steaming hot pyaz ki kachoris or aloo pyaz ki kachoris at Lakshmi Mishthan Bhandar stuffed with a lightly caramalised and exceptionally seasoned onion filling with a sweet and spicy tamarind chutney.

Puchke: The rajasthani version of waterballs a.k.a golgappe  😛 😛 😛

The Chokhi Dhani Platter: We chose Chaupad Jeeman Ghar for our dinner at Chokhi Dhani . In India Chaupad is an ancient game of Royal families like today’s Ludo, which has four straight paths joint in center. This is what “Chaupad Jeeman Ghar” has in its shape. It has four straight rows meeting at center. Each row has 20 persons’ sitting capacity where you find best of Rajasthani dishes like Batis sunk into pure ghee with Choorma, a traditional dish of Rajasthan and more…

It was a dish full of:

  • Sangri
  • Sag-gatta ro
  • Sag-dal pachhmelri
  • Sag-kadi besanri
  • sag-hariyalo
  • Roti-gahuyari
  • Roti-makkari
  • Roti-bajarari
  • Dal-Bati
  • Chawal
  • Achar kair sangri ro
  • Chatni lasna ri
  • Bura
  • Chat-Choulari
  • Malpuaa
  • Jalebi
  • Salad-Mix
  • Dal-Chawal
  • Makkhan-Dhani ro
  • Ghee-Dhaniro
  • Chhachh
  • Lassi
  • Papad
  • Khichada Chhadiya motth

Though could not finish the whole thing…but tried everything that was served and enjoyed to the core (so much so that after having the platter, we danced for 45 minutes to burn calories  😛 :P)
