Keep Your Bucket List Ready For The Authentic Jaipuri Delights!

An itinerary is never complete without some delicious local foodie delights of the place in it. So ditch the stereotypical food chain brands and savour the luscious and irresistible treats that are just not-to-be-missed when you visit Jaipur!

  • Dal Baati Churma– Who can miss the legendary Dal Baati Churma? The saada, masala and mawa baati dipped in ghee, served with dal and three different kinds of churma is the Aan Baan Shaan of Rajasthanis.
  • Gatte ki Sabzi– It’s one of the most basic of dishes cooked in Rajasthani homes, but the tempering done with red chillies and garlic adds a very different, not-to-be-forgotten flavour to it.
  • Ker Sangri– This is the legit sabzi of Rangeelo Rajasthan’s “Registhan.” Ker, a shrub berry and Sangri, a bean of a flowering tree called Khejari, come together to make this exclusive delight of Rajasthan. It is often enjoyed in winter!
  • Laal Maans– This one is for the non-veg fans! Lamb or Mutton in a sauce of yoghurt and hot Mathania chillies is rich in garlic and has a very spicy flavour to it. 
  • Aloo Pyaaz ki Sabji with Bejad ki Roti– Out of all the things that you find in Jaipur, this one is totally different with not just the rich in spices Aloo Pyaaz ki Sabji but also the rich in ghee and fibre Bejad roti.
  • Lehsun ki Chutney– Red, hot and spicy, this chutney is what will have your taste buds on fire! Extremely spicy, lehsun chutney is made by grinding garlic with dried red chillies.
  • Gajak– For all the sweet tooths out there! You just cannot leave Jaipur without taking along this “til ki patti” from Jaipur.
  • Mirchi ke Tipore– Mirchi fried in besan and mustard oil along with the other spices makes up for this spectacular appetizer!
  • Kachori– Kachori in Jaipur is not just food, it is a feeling. Available in various options, like Dal, Pyaaz and even Mawa, this delicious desi delight will have your senses tingled.
  • Sev Tamatar ki Sabji– Last but not the least, the chatpati Sev namkeen put in tomato curry is one of the simplest and one of the most palatable dishes from Jaipur.

You may leave Jaipur after your indelible stay, but Jaipur would forever be in your heart with random memories of its scenic beauty, cultural richness and not to forget crave-worthy local dishes.

Jaipur Hotels Spreading The Warmth Of The Festive Season With Traditional Cake Mixing Ceremonies!

Just as the Sawan is the month for devouring into Rajasthani delicacy Ghewar, the start of harvest season in the month of November is the time for the preparation for traditional cakes. The festival of engulfing into mouthwatering Christmas cakes is just a month away and Jaipurites live by all the traditions and cultures with great zeal. The preparation for traditional cakes has already begun in the city. Every hotel is catching on with the trend of Cake Mixing Ceremony enthusiastically.

christmad fever_i love jaipur.jpg

History- Cake mixing ceremony is a part of age-old traditions. During the harvest month, lots of fruits and nuts were harvested and the same were used in the making of traditional plum cakes.  The ingredients of the cake are mixed in advance so that at the time of Christmas they can develop aroma and taste. When the soaking period is over then these fruits are sent for the final mixing and cake baking procedure.

The Christmas cake mixing ceremony is a great way to celebrate happiness and spirit associated with the great event of Christmas. Let’s see where in Jaipur the Cake Mixing ceremony was held or about to happen so that you can get a chance to be a part of the social fare.

  • Rambagh Palace- The traditional Christmas cake mixing recently took place at the iconic Steam restaurant of Rambagh Palace. The in-house guests, as well as the socialites of Jaipur, participated in the ceremony with verve and gusto. Clad in aprons, Santa caps and gloves – the guests had a field day mixing ‘spirits’ with fruits and nuts. Then the mixture was tossed and turned till they were drenched in the spirit. Christmas décor, psychedelic music as well as sumptuous drinks and snacks added immensely to the gaiety of the event.

  • Café Samsara- Situate in the Royal Heritage Haveli, Cafe Samara had a funfilled Christmas cake mixing ceremony.

  • Four Points By Sheraton- All set to for mixing a melange of exquisite flavours for the finger licking and lip smacking cake. Join them on 19th November.

This Diwali, Let’s Keep Our Culture Alive!

Preserved and passed on for generations, the elixir of living the life and the footprints of our ancestors, the culture, the traditions and the zeal of life. Diwali is not just about a festival in our country. It is more about heritage, and its preservation.

On Diwali we celebrate the return of Ram from 14 years of exile, and growing up, Diwali was all about lighting up diyas, cooking sweet Indian delicacies, sparking fire crackers, and worshipping Lord Ganesha and goddess Laxmi. With the change in time and tradition, we are losing the grip on soul of this festival. Here are a few things we all need to turn back to this Diwali!

  1. The Elaborate Diwali Pooja- The elaborate Diwali pooja always used to be a family affair but now it is also losing its value to us. The conventional ways of celebrating Diwali started by pooja are changing with most of the youngsters migrating to different cities for education and job. We should learn to pray on our own if we cannot reach home on Diwali. 🙂

puja2

  1. Sweets– Where there is celebration, there has to be sweets, but nowadays we are turning towards chocolates and other dessert options that are known to be #gluttonfree #cholesterolfree #fatfree and whatnot. We are forgetting that the delicious recipes of homemade sweets like laddus, gulabjamun, barfi, halwa, mathri, etc. that have been handed down to us by our nani and dadi are much healthier and delightful in every sense.

doodh-ka-ladu.jpg

  1. New Clothes- The zeal of the festival Diwali needs to be kept alive with new clothes, because Diwali also marks a new beginning, the end of evil and the victory of the good. We promise you that you are going to have a worthy stock of pictures for Instagram with a new ethnic attire.

ethnic wear_1.jpg

  1. Cleaning our homes- Scientifically, it is a good idea to clean your house around mid-October and mid-November because after the monsoon, cleaning makes sure all the germs and infectants are eradicated from the house.

diwal decorations

Although, religiously it is believed that goddess Laxmi visits the homes of devotees on the night of Diwali to bless them with happiness, luck and prosperity for the rest of the year. Therefore, we illuminate and decorate our houses with diyas, lights and rangoli.

diwali-decorations.jpg

  1. Firecrackers- Burning of firecrackers also carries a scientific logic behind itself apart from the celebration. The heat produced in the environment due to burning of the crackers makes sure that all the disease causing microbes are removed from the environment after the end of monsoon. But the perpetually increasing pollution restricts us from doing so, and we can opt for lighting mustard oil diyas for the same effect.

jb-crackers-2.jpg

So this Diwali, let’s make a promise that we are not going to feel guilty about having an extra gulab jamun, or bursting the fire crackers, that we are not going to wear that old comfortable jeans, rather try a slightly uncomfortable but new dress; that we are going to make sure our houses are spick and span before Diwali. Let’s make a promise to preserve the enriched culture handed down to us by our ancestors.

Happy Diwali!
