A Musical Ride For Jaipur Foodies !

Music is a language that doesn’t speak in particular words. It speaks in emotions, and so does food. Food is the music we hear in spices and flavours rather than notes and scales. When the softness of your favourite dish melts in your mouth, it creates a hymn so overwhelming, that the strings are buzzed in the heart and soul.

Hail dear sons of Epicurus! On the birthday of the most legendary singer of all times Lata Mangeshkar Ji, Jaipur Beat has brought the jukebox of spices and flavours with dishes from various cuisines, creating an orchestra of fusion only for you.

According to Indian Ras, genres in music evoke different emotions in us and same does the food! Every food has a different feel to it coming right from the place of its origin.

  • Pasta: Singing the songs of Italian Folk culture, presents itself the very favourite Pasta. This dish with authentic Italian flavours is the classic penne pasta cooked in Italian red or white or pesto sauce and accounts for an amazing option for those craving a delightful starter option! It is one of the most favourites of us Jaipurites!

  • Tandoori Chicken: *Drumrolls* Give way for the Jaan, The Aan, Baan and Shaan of and the most celebrated dish from Punjabi cuisine, Tandoori Chicken. Marinated and grilled, Tandoori chicken will have your heart tuned to the beats of bhangra. Wherever we go, the non-veg lovers are forever drooling over this amazing dish!

  • Ker Sangri: Every bit of this delicious Rajasthani delight calls to you with its melodious rhythms singing “Padharo Mhare Des!” This mouth watering dish is served as a delicacy by people in Rajasthan and is made from a wild shrub from the Rajasthani desert. And after all “Voh Rajasthani hi kya jisko Ker Sangri na pasand ho?”

 

ker sangri

  • Pav Bhaji– Pav Bhaji is one of those dishes that we are ever so ready for. Authentically Maharashtrian, Bhaji is a mix of vegetables mashed together and cooked in spices and served with buns (pav) and garlic chutney. Jaipurites love to indulge into Pav Bhaji every once in a while.

  • Exotic Garlic Bread: Garlic Bread is the ever so loved choice of Jaipurites. It is the Americanized form of authentic Italian dish Bruschetta. It spreads the aroma of the fusion between Italian-American flavours and the refreshed melodies singing in olive and oregano tunes.

  • Pani Patashi– If there is anything in Jaipur that’s in abundance, it’s pani patashiwalas! You can find one at every 100 metres, and guess what; they’re all crowded not just by women, but men too! Semolina or flour made puchkas filled with spicy mashed potatoes, chutneys and spiced water sing the melodies of northern India and are always more than welcome!

 

golgappe

  • Dal Baati Churma– Be it the ‘Goth’ at Khole ke Hanumanji or homemade ghee baati, Jaipurites are always up for the authentic Rajasthani delicacy and love to indulge into the flavours of churma and masala baati with dal. Every time we have this signature food from Rajasthan, there’s a true feel of Rajasthan running through our veins!

Reviving the Lost Art of Blue Pottery

From booming Jaipuri prints to authentic leather jootis, Kathputlis, and stone carving to glittering lac bangles, Jaipur has always been a hub for handicrafts and traditional arts.

blue pottery_14.jpg

Having travelled through the generations of royal art and culture is one of the most prolific arts of our Jaipur city, the art that encapsulates the spirit of painting, carving and moulding altogether; Blue Pottery. Embellished in floral motifs and beautiful hand-drawn designs with natural colours and substances, Blue Pottery is one of a kind traditional art of Jaipur.

blue pottery.jpg

We have all heard about it, seen it, bought it and used at home for décor as well as for culinary purposes, but it is a rarely known fact that the amazing art of Blue Pottery is a handicraft and all the items are totally handmade.

blue pottery_9

Emerging from Persian Chinese roots, Blue Pottery was introduced in India by Maharaja Mansingh I and was carried on by his ascendants. This unique art of making colourful earthen wares is exclusive to our city Jaipur but is losing its identity day by day. Jaipur Beat took an initiative to talk about and try to revive such lost arts of our beloved city Jaipur.

blue pottery_7.jpg

Team Jaipur Beat visited the Blue Pottery Art Centre of Jaipur and tried to look deeper into the making of blue pottery items.

blue pottery_12

The raw material used to make blue pottery items includes quartz, glass, rock salt, and natural gum from trees. The first three ingredients are finely churned in a traditional manual ‘chakki’ to ensure that the powder is grinded finely. Then the gum is added to the powder to make a paste that is put into different moulds. The paste is then left to set in the moulds for some time and a white coating is done on the items. Later they are run through the furnace where the chances of breakage are 60%!

blue pottery_1.jpg

And now this is where the real magic happens! The brown colour on the earthenware turns to sky blue with the rising temperature and further to a darker shade of blue and we finally get the traditional blue pottery items.

blue pottery_3.jpg

Blue pottery is not just limited to the making of pots and dishes, but it’s almost like you name it and it’s possible. From chandeliers to bathroom tiles and soap dispensers, showpieces of all kinds to bottles and corks, lamps and lucky charms, everything is available in breathtaking designs in blue pottery with different flowers, animals and other designs hand-painted on them.

So in this festive season, you know what to do about re-decorating your home.
