What to eat?

The most famous dish from the state, no Rajasthani food is complete without Dal Bati Churma. Similarly, you cannot give a miss to Laal Maas, the spicy dish which gets its colour from the fiery red chilies and is best served with Bajra Rotis. A meal perfect for the Maharajas, Mohan Maas is a treat for every non-vegetarian tourist, which is cooked with milk and mild spices. Another treat, Ker Sangri, a typical desert vegetable goes well with Bajra Roti.

Gatte Ki Khichdi is certainly the best rice preparation served in many hotels in Jaipur. While Gatte Ki Khichdi is prepared with rice and soft Besan dumplings is the perfect evening snack, Dil Khushal, known for its toothsome sweets, leaves a grainy flavour in your mouth. Boondo Raita balances the taste of spices in your food and, once mixed with sweet and sour yogurt, makes a mouthwatering combination. Another must-have dish, Gatte ka Pulao, also known as Ram Pulao, is this rich combination of fresh steamed rice and spicy Gatte.

Other delicacies from the state include Churma Ladoo (Desi Ghee Ladoos served after Dal Bati), Badam ka Halwa, Aam ki Launji (an instant pickle made of raw mangoes), Methi Bajra Poori, Mawa Kachori (Kachori filled with dry fruits and Khoya, deep fried and dipped in sugar syrup), Pyaaz Kachori, Shahi Gatte (a richer version of the popular dish, Masala Gatte), Gujia, Kalmi Vada (deep fried Gram Dal, best enjoyed with spicy green chutney), Ghevar (disc-shaped sweet, prepared with ghee, flour, paneer and sugar syrup) and Balushahi.
