The Golden Triangle, covering the lands of maharajas and nawabs/ mughals in the three cities of Jaipur, Agra, and Delhi makes for amust visit travel plan for any traveler. But did you know these three destinations have a global following for the unique food and the flavors of authentic spices?

Buckle up as we’re taking you on a journey connecting the golden triangle of flavours- you heard it right, where you can relish the perfect blend of spicy Jaipuri-khade-masale, Delhi’s subtle tanginess and Agra’s Mughal flavours in every bite. We are raving about the ongoing food festival at Saffron, Jaipur Marriott Hotel.

As we reached there, we were totally overwhelmed with the fresh vibes, and balmy aura of tranquility. Soothing live music enticed us and the antiques from ancient era took us down memory lane to the time where our grannies used to make mouth-watering succulent gastronomical dishes.

In this mesmerizing milieu of classic fine-dine setting and highly courteous staff we couldn’t resist to gorge upon the ravishing cuisines of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.

For starters, we had a refreshing beverage mocktail: ‘Jaipur Royal’ which was prepared with orange and mint and was quite enticing for our taste buds as it was the perfect mix of the ingredients.

With our golden triangle journey still pending, we were thrilled with the ardent aroma of rich flavours everywhere. Baffled by such a wide variety of the gastronomic food of all the three states; ultimately we asked the chef to serve us his favourites! And that was the best decision—we had the best vegetarian platter served with mouth-watering delicacies we had never eaten before.

Vinegar soaked onions blended with traditional Delhi spices and made into ‘Paneer Khatta Pyaaz’ perfectly complemented the ‘Khammiri roti,’ a tender thin layer with a crispy base of bread. With fragrance of Dilli in the air, we enjoyed the quintessential ‘Lal Kot ki subz biryani’ with rich and creamy ‘bhindi ka raita’, a whipped savoured yogurt garnished with thin and salty julienned ladyfingers.

The khade-masale(whole spices) were lavishly used in the gourmet appetizers like the ‘Jaipuri Sangri ki seekh’. Made with Jaipur Sangri, the seekh kebab had a rich fragrance of tamarind and was bliss for our spicy cravings.

Ria, my colleague; fell for the relatively blandish ‘Purani Delhi Ka Bharwan Aloo’. What intrigued us about this dish was its crispy coating of papad with smooth and tender barbequed kebabs inside which melted softly in the mouth.

After such a lavish dinner, we could have left but somehow the meal felt incomplete without a dessert. To our delight we were served these luscious mithais of the golden triangle in typical mitti-ki cutlery and was something we would never miss. The chilled candy rose petal ‘gulab-ki ice cream’ served with piping hot ‘gulab jamun‘ rich with nuts made our meal unforgettable. The entire episode left a deep essence of incredible Jaipur, Agra and Delhi with us to cherish forever.

Jaipur Beat highly recommends each one of you to visit the fest, as it is not an affair just for the foodies but for those who are deeply attached to Indian roots and want to revisit the old memory lane or for those who want to explore a new journey of northern India. From the first sip of the beverage to the last bite of the dessert; the flavorsome culinary will certainly take you back to the essence of our very own Indian soul. The way all the flavours representing separate states complimented one another was exquisite and therefore youmust be a part of this grand occasion.

We are grateful to the head chef, Mr. Ranjeet Singh and his team for enlightening us with such an overwhelming evening. Through this festival Mr. Singh wants the common man to encounter a trail of forgotten flavours for which he personally wandered the locales of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur and handpicked their authentic spices to recreate them and revive the soulful taste in the most explicit way.

Mind you, you can engage in this fantastic experience and savor this assortment of flavours only at Saffron at The Marriott, everyday from 7:30 pm to 11:00 pm till 15th July 2018.

Jaipur Rugs Roll Out The Red Carpet For Rural Artisans At Arcasia Jaipur

A few kilometers away from the hustle bustle of the city, in a far away village, lies a community of artisans who use their gifted hands in making India’s finest hand knotted carpets and a company that bridges the gap between these local artisans and global community – Jaipur Rugs.

One of India’s largest manufacturers of hand knotted rugs, Jaipur Rugs has this time partnered with Arcasia – a forum that has gathered experts and professionals from the architectural industry, to discuss potential methods that could help incorporate green elements and green technology in the project design and construction process progresses. The 3 day event started on 23rd May and Jaipur Beat took the opportunity to meet the artisans at Jaipur Marriott.

The most interesting part of the forum was a setup that offered a live experience of watching the extremely elaborate process of carpet weaving by the rural artisans. Out of the 86 processes that are carried out in this highly skilled art, 5 processes were on display and the feeling was nothing short of bewilderment and admiration to watch 5 women happily carrying out the 5 processes of map making, spinning, Rafu, hand knotting and embossing.

“The idea is to bridge the gap between grass root heroes and global delegates.” said Kavita Chaudhary, the Design Director at Jaipur Rugs. Having been the only Indian company to have won an accolade in the esteemed Carpet Design Awards 2017 and the only Indian company to consecutively win 3 awards at German Design Award, Jaipur Rugs aims at uplifting the grass root level weavers and introduce them to the end consumers and global architects at this event.

Kavita Chaudhary , Design Director of Jaipur Rugs

Headquartered in Jaipur, the 1978 establishment – Jaipur Rugs sells hand-knotted rugs via retail stores and online portal – http://www.jaipurrugsco.com/. Mr. NK Chaudhary, the founder of Jaipur Rugs, came up with this idea after some conflicts of interest with his family which now makes for an interesting background story.

“I get the maximum of my design ideas while travelling. The best ideas come to you when you are in a relaxed mood and the windows and doors of your mind are open.” said Kavita Chaudhary (D/o NK Chaudhary). When asked about her inspirations for such unique and pleasant designs, she said ‘I love Europe. It’s not just the architecture, but the moods of the spaces used in the interiors that in turn inspire the moods of our carpets”.

Each of the women carrying out their tasks earnestly in the colorful setup at the event was a treat to watch. Not only this, every weaver had a lesson to share and story to tell.
