Eat Onion Kachori in Jaipur
There’s a Jaipur institution called Rawat Mishtan Bandar. They’re famous for their sweet lassi and some specific savoury dishes. .
First stop is the payment counter, where they’re really friendly, and obviously used to people not quite knowing what they want. Don’t worry, they’ll direct you, although you’ll probably end up with more than you bargained for.
The onion kachori is what they’re famous for and they cost 25 INR each. Deep fried onion tasty. Nom nom.
Like Indian food and drink enough to travel for it? Here’s our guide to Awadhi Cuisine in Lucknow, and check out what to eat in Amristar in the Punjab. Then there’s our guide of what to eat in Jaipur and how to get a beer in Fort Kochi. If you’re more of a wine drinker, then our guide to Indian wine tasting is here.
This is worth your while coming for this alone, but while you’re here, be sure to try the veg samosa and the Hirch Bada. The Hirch Bada is a deep fried, big green chilli with veg stuffing, its tasty, but not too spicy.
Saffron Flavoured Lassi
Saffron flavoured creamy lassi here at Rawat Mishtan Bandar is 40 INR each. They’re served with a spoon and if you don’t have a huge sweet tooth then we’d suggest that you share. The saffron flavouring is delicate and worth a try.
Dhal Fry and Chapatis
It’s worth coming to the Doors restaurant opposite the Raj Gandiv cinema for the price of the food alone. Mind you, the taste is darned good too! The fabulous chapatis cost 5 INR each. That’s 6 UK pence, or 7 US cents. So fill yourself up.
The fabulous dhal fry was just 45 INR for a half portion and more than enough for one person!
Lassi from a Lassi Wala
Jaipur is famous for her Lassi Wala’s. Wala just means seller. And there are lots of them. You’ll find them on the MI road, close to the junction with the Bhagwant Das road. They’re all alongside each other. Once you spot the bins of empty clay pots you’ll know you’re in the right place.
The one to go to is shop 312, It’s been in business since in 1944. Our first attempt to acquire lassi failed miserably, as we’d arrived there at 1730. The Lassi sold out hours ago.
At 10am the next day we were more successful. This is where you buy lassi in a handle free clay pot. It’s fabulous and sour. (we love sour or salt lassi). It’s tasty, with a little hard curd skin to chew on. No, seriously, its good. But, it’s not as good as the amazing creamy lassi we found in Amritsar, while we were exploring Punjabi Food
This wasn’t all we ate, just some of the highlights. What about you? What are you favourite things to eat in the Pink City?
