Summer is incomplete without these 5 Jaipuri delights!

There is no escaping from the summer heat that. ACs, coolers and Fans run all day making you feel better but the cold feeling that comes from within has to be the best. When you eat or drink something cool in summer, the satiating feeling is out of this world. Keeping ourselves on the cooler side is required for good health as well. All these things simply mean that we must keep loading ourselves with refreshing drinks and foods that keep us going at this time of the year.

Here are our favorite Jaipuri delights for this summer and we are sure that they are your favorite too!

  1. Lassi

lassiwala
This sweet treat full of cream of Lassiwala is a must have during summers. Even though one glass of this lassi is quite filling you will be asking for more of this sweet curd based drink. Some like it with salt too but the sweet lassi is one of the most refreshing drinks. It even helps in alleviating the hunger pangs as well.

 

  1. Kulfi and Faluda

Either you love faluda or you hate it but kulfi is everyone’s favourite. The creamy, rich kulfi from Ramchandra needs no introduction but even the hawkers sell good kulfi in Jaipur. It makes us feel good instantly. The cool quotient of kulfi can be enhanced with a few smooth strands of faluda and assorted sugary syrups.

 

  1. Juices

juices

Gulnar situated in the heart of the walled city where the people of Jaipur goes for refreshing juices. The shop has 4 more outlets sprawled in different areas. The real magic is sitting in this small little shop in Kishanpole bazaar and sipping fresh juices which will definitely revitalize your long summer days.

 

  1. Rabri

rabri

Mahaveer Rabri Bhandar- one of the oldest places in Jaipur this rabri bhandar is famous not only for its rabri but also for a range of other sweets. This creamy and rich textured rabri is another summer delight that is very fulfilling.

 

  1. Ice Cream

Remember when we did not even know the exotic names of ice creams and all we cared about was ‘Softies’? Our day wouldn’t end without making a trip once or twice a week to Guddu Ice Cream Parlour.

 

Now, we only wish that this lockdown gets over soon so that we can go and enjoy these amazing summer delicacies.
