When in Jaipur, Eat like Jaipurites do!

Most travelers heading to Jaipur, are aware of the fact that Rajasthani dishes are awesome, but most, don’t have a local friend or relative to tell them exactly what to try. We have made a guide just for you folks who are traveling to Jaipur, in a hope that you get to try everything we locals’ love, and why Rajasthan, is called a foodie’s paradise.
With so many upbeat cafes and restaurants, it is confusing for travelers what to eat in Jaipur. Here’s a quick guide by Jaipur Beat.

Laal Maas

lal-maas
Laal Maas

Laal maas is a delectable dish originated from Rajasthan itself, you may find it some places outside of Rajasthan too, but the authentic taste of Rajasthan is hard to copy. The dish is eaten with Indian Breads (Bajra roti, Bejad Roti, Jungli roti, Roomali roti, and whatnot).

Ghewar

ghevar
Ghewar

This delectable dessert, also available topped with malai, is something we could die for. Ghewar is the epitome of all desserts, and remain the number one dessert of choice for everyone in Rajasthan.

Mirch ke Tapore, Besan Mirch

mirchi-ke-tapore.jpg
Mirch Tapore

These savory pickles are a feat in their own. Served as something like a side and achar, these are sure to take your breath away. Mirch Tapore and Besan Mirch resembles a lot in the green chili part but tastes worlds apart. Best thing undeniably is you will probably get both in every Rajasthani thali you order.

Dal, Bati and Churma

dal baati churma
Dal, Bati and Churma

The famous trio of Rajasthani cuisine, the humblest of them all, the most eaten too we guess. There are various Bati’s in the scene, there’s a Plain Bati, a Masala Bati, a Keema bati and many more. The Churma comes in 4 or 5 varieties as well, there’s simply nothing like Churma when it comes to Rajasthani desserts.

Bajra roti, Bejad roti.

screen-shot-2018-12-03-at-1-15.jpg
Bejad Roti

These Indian Breads add up on a different level to taste when combined with the famous flavorful Rajasthani dishes. For records, Bejad roti tastes heavenly with Aloo Pyaaz sabzi and Lasaan ki chutney and is a must try.

Aloo Pyaaz ki sabji and Lasaan ki Chutney

Lasaan Chutney

Aloo Pyaaz ki Sabji is the real-life manifestation of heaven. Even though Lasaan ki chutney is something you can probably associate with any dish, it just adds a level of sophistication to Aloo Pyaaz’s taste. The magic of this chutney is undeniable, that’s quite the reason you’ll pretty much find it in every Rajasthani thali and being sold loose in the shops too. It may seem easy to make at home, but the authentic Rajasthani Lasaan ki chutney is just too difficult to recreate.

Kachoris, Mirch vada, Samosas

jai-1.jpg
Samosa
mirchi-bada (1).jpg
Mirchi Vada

shree-ram-namkeen-bhandar.jpg
Kachori

We believe these three should be announced as the national breakfast and evening snack of India. The Rajasthani’s love for these is very very strong. The world-famous Kota kachori is something you’ll only find in Rajasthan, while authentic Samosas and Mirchi Vadas are hard to find outside Rajasthan. We bet you have all grown up eating these three on every Sunday morning, because we, definitely did.

Bajre ki khichdi

jb-bajra.jpg
Bajre ki khichdi

Bajre is khichdi is khichdi reinvented by Rajasthanis to taste a million times better, it’s served with jaggery, white butter and loads of ghee. Bajre ki khichdi is basically a winter dish and will keep you warm all winters long, all while making your taste buds dance.

This is only half the list and the next part is coming very soon. Till then, keep exploring and keep eating. 😉

Things No One Tells You About – Jal Mahal, Jaipur

January, that time of the year when everybody be it Jaipurites or tourists always ask for this one place, Jal Mahal. Yes! Jal Mahal is in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan and no, it is not built on any island like other water palaces. This 5 storied building continues to stand still in Man Sagar Lake with 4 floors immersed in water and dare anyone come near it. You can watch, behold the sight and, capture its beauty only from a distance as it is too introverted to let anybody close to it. We’re sure you must have visited this eyeful multiple of times, but let’s enlighten you today on these unknown facts about your favourite “Water Palace”.

jal; mahal_1.jpg

  • Initially, Jal Mahal welcomed the royal family with open arms and let them have a gala time here. Back then it served as a host to duck hunting parties for the royals. Years passed by and it started getting shy. And now, you can only have a look at it wondering what makes this architectural marvel stand tall in the water body.

  • Come February, and you can spot large number of migratory birds dancing here and there, enjoying the serenity of water at Jal Mahal. This once again revives the liveliness in it.

  • Chameli Bagh of Jal Mahal was a grand spectacle to watch back when beautiful dance and musical performances painted this splendor in its own colours.
  • Built in red sandstone, Jal Mahal is one of the most photographed monuments in Pink City. With tranquil waters by the side and birds sitting on top of the chattris giving it a picturesque view, tourists and localites love to spend their soothing evenings here, clicking selfies with it in the backdrop.

  • Catch the sight of this exquisiteness this weekend with your loved ones, but only from the outside as no one can actually go inside it to see it.

jalmahal

Most people view the architectural brilliance of Jal Mahal from across the Jaipur-Delhi Road but if you take a walk for a kilometre or two into the valley behind the lake, its true beauty will reveal.

Did we just make you love Jal Mahal even more? If yes, then we think we have sorted your weekend evening plans! 😉
