  • 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.

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.

11 Thoughts That Cross Our Mind While Wearing The First Sweater Of The Season!

Every season brings along a new excitement and zeal with it, and we are extremely excited to welcome the season of bright and dark sweaters, pullovers, scarves, mufflers and what not but at the same time taking out our winter clothes can be quite a pain.

Since the weather is beginning to change in Jaipur and the air is getting colder in mornings and evenings it’s almost the time to sort out our winter wear. Whether we like it we all have these thoughts that cross our minds while trying out the first sweater of the season!

 

1. Should I sun dry it?

This is the very first thought that comes to our mind when we fish out for the very first winter clothes that were long forgotten and now smell of naphthalene.

2. Have I grown fatter?

 

The moment of truth when we realize that we have outgrown the last year’s favourite sweater! We try our best to fit into it for one last time!

3. I’ll be missing you whites, but hello there brights!

It’s quite a pain to pack the summer pastel shades, but hey! Winter is all about bright and dark shades! Say bye to shorts and tanks for a while and welcome the bright high- necks and pullovers!

4. Leather jackets

Is it yet too early to be wearing the ever so classy leather jacket?

5. Oh hey there, forgotten friend!

There are always some pretty pullovers and sweaters that we completely forgot about even in the last winter!

6. Is it actually Winter yet?

Would a sweater be too much? Is it that cold yet?  Let’s just carry a shawl for provision!

7. This is perfect only for zero degrees!

Then there is that one jacket that’s perfect for the Ladakh Trip, but definitely not for Jaipur! It’s never going to be that cold here.

8. Too thick- Too thin!

This is a never-ending struggle because we are always in a judgment mode, where one sweater feels too thick, and the other too thin!

9. Sale Sale Sale!

 

 

It’s the shopping time again! All Jaipurites wait for the Tibetan Woolen Market and Winter festive sale all year round!

10. Time to take a selfie!

The cute pink blush on your face matched up with a bright sweater always accounts to a good selfie!. Ka-chow!

11. Hola! Winter accessories!

It’s that time of the year again where you can wrap yourself up in bright woollen scarves, mufflers, gloves, and socks to leave a cute pinky blush on your bare nose and cheeks!

 

 

Happy Winters 🙂
