Photographs that reflect the beauty of Jaipur city in monsoon

Monsoon is here and we cannot get over the serenity of Jaipur City. As the little pitter-patter drops fall from the sky they don’t just bring with them the petrichor but a wave of aesthetic pleasure which enhances the beauty of Pink City even more. The fresh green landscape of Jaipur with new life from the top. You don’t believe us, have a look.

Modern Chowpatty – The latest Food Junction in Jaipur!

IMG_9713.jpg

Just when Jaipurites were thinking that the city has started settling on a new food complex ie Masala Chowk at Ram Niwas Garden that hosts in itself a variety of dishes, there came “Modern Chowpatty” which is now the talk of the town.
Call it Choupati or Chow-patty, it serves the same purpose as it’s counterpart, just in a much-sophisticated way as well as with a fresh outlook.
People not only just come here to soak in the beauty of the natural and fresh air, but also to enjoy the lip-smacking snacks that are served here. The food stalls at the Modern Chowpatty serve a variety of vegetarian delights.
From Rawat ki Kachori, Chaap from Delhi, Chatpati Kolkatta Chaat, Thai, Mexican and Lebanese cuisines to tea, ice cream, juices, shakes everything is right here.

Just like any other place which is in its new days, The Modern Chowpatty also is less crowded and this makes one’s meal worthwhile due to the less disturbance along with fast servicing. The rate at which it’s gaining ground from people around the city is phenomenal and has been getting a decent amount of footfall after the evening.

But what catches our attention is its dining area. The unique circular shaped dining areas are something that we have never seen and experienced in Jaipur.  The Modern Chowpatty works on cashless basis i.e get your royal pass issued and you will be free from cash payments on every stall individually.

Yeah ! Digital India 🙂

A New Hub For Chai Lovers In Jaipur

Chai is an integral part of our homes, in fact, our lives. If you’re a non-chai drinker your family and friends are the ones who question your existence because you haven’t tried it yet. Well, we think you are missing onto something really nice and should give it a try immediately because it is literally heaven on earth (no jokes!). Even though a 365-day pleasure, drinking chai during rains is a romantic experience on a whole new level especially with the one we are going to tell you about.

sikora raja park

In this delightful monsoon weather, we have found a new space for Jaipur’s tea lovers ‘Sikora’ that has recently opened up in Raja Park. Whenever you are in a mood to soak in the musical lyrics with a sip of tea this tea hub is the place to be. The word Sikora entices us to know more about that and we came to know that it is actually a mud vessel or Kulhar which is heated in the tandoor. Sounds interesting!

tandoori chai

Once the kulhar is boiling hot, the chai is poured in it so as to blend in the flavours. Ultimately, the chai is poured into a fresh kulhar and given to you. This is what that gives the chai a unique taste. Along with fascinating flavours of chais like Tandoori, Masala, Cardamom, Ginger, Tulsi, Rose, Zafran chai and Green tea, this tea hub serves a variety of luscious street food also that includes Kesar ki Jalebi, Dal Pakwan, Poha to Vada Pao, Maggi, French Fries.

sikora

The two varieties that we tasted were Rose Chai & Zafran Chai- Cooked with rose petals, almonds, and cashew nuts. The flavour was unique and fresh. It smelled amazing and was a genuine delight to have in such a breezy weather. Similarly, the Zafran Chai has an extremely comforting and subtle flavour of saffron and we totally enjoyed drinking it.

You can’t have Chai alone so we tried their amazing Misal Pao

Missle Pao is not very common and not easily available in Jaipur. Here the preparation of the same was quite authentic and we truly loved the thick layers of butter on the pao ☺

snacks

So, this monsoon if you are out and enjoying the weather with friends or family and looking for Garma garam Kulhad Ki Chai, along with some tasty snack this is a place to go.
