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

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

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

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, 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.

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

Samosa
mirchi-bada (1).jpg
Mirchi Vada

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. 😉

5 Dining Places In Jaipur To Celebrate Family Bond

What we love is family outing any day any time. Right? Jaipurites love to spend quality time together with their families and if given a chance we simply love family dinners a lot. The bond we share with our closed ones and the willingness to celebrate each occasion with family is something we are never tired of. We are sure like us you also look forward to these small get together with your family. Whenever there is an option to dine out with family we usually are confused where to head to in Pink city to cherish these moments. So, today on International Day of Families, if you are looking for a perfect family-friendly restaurant, here we go-

1.       The Forresta Kitchen & Bar

Whenever we go out for family dinner, The Forresta, is the first choice. The place is serene and the forest ambience with outdoor seating options is always preferred by the senior members of the family. The running mist liners reduces the intensity of the heat and allows you to enjoy outdoors even in summers.  The Forresta is loved by each and every member of the family right from children to adults for its wide array of cuisine that it offers. Their alfresco bar is the favourite choice for social drinkers.

2.       Handi Vaishali

A traditional Rajasthani touch interior along with classy décor where the fragrance of Handi Meat endures you in is none other than Handi Vaishali. Yes, we are talking about new Handi Vaishali. Soothing indoor and fresh outdoor seating area makes it for a special family time. The place is favourite amongst the families that have different food preferences (veg and non veg both).

3.       Laxmi Misthan Bhandar

Ask your father or grandfather, their first choice still is LMB. If LMB’s special dahi Bada or Rajasthani thali is your grand father’s favourite, the Chinese and other continental offerings are for the younger ones to satiate their taste buds.

4.       Fort Jaipur

Boasting of being the largest restaurant of Rajasthan, Fort takes us back to the royal days as the restaurant is inspired by the historic Rajasthani architecture. The place feels like a fantasy with its grandeur and there is a lot to feed on but only Vegetarian delights. We are sure, no member of the family will ever say No for going to this place.

5.       RJ 14

Weekend or weekday, we have always experienced long queues outside RJ 14. For its lovely ambience and our favourite Hara Bhara Kebab, standing in a queue is always worth it.

4 reasons why we love to visit World Trade Park, Jaipur

World Trade Park : The new found attraction for the locals in Jaipur and a place that is so complete in itself that some of us could even think of spending a life there. World Trade Park (now known as WTP) is not a mall, it is one of the biggest buildings in Jaipur with huge brand outlets, a multiplex, food court with a wide variety of cuisines, etc. Apart from all this, there are a few main reasons that makes WTP one of the favorite hangouts for Jaipurites.

1) Because it is less like a mall and more like a monument: Even the price of parking ticket proves that.

2) To get beautiful pictures clicked while leaning on the railing.
