Daal, Bati and Jaipur


Since it was our first trip to Rajasthan, we were extremely excited over tasting the world-famous and class at its own Rajasthani cuisine. And truly we were not at all put down.

We somehow included daal-bati in our daily routine. On our second day of the trip we wanted to explore more on the food and hence went to ITC Rajputana Hotel for our dinner. We had booked our table at Jal Mahal Restaurant beforehand.

As we went, we were cordially received by the restaurant staff. There was a dinner buffet serving many of the Rajasthani dishes. The desserts were a bit modified, but the food was ultra-delicious and lip-smacking with the whole purity of Indian flavors. We needed up filling out stomach more than we could.

The restaurant staff also had recommended the perfect wine for the night. So, the whole fooding experience made us happily high. Here are some of the glimpses:

On our last day of the trip we went to Chokhi Dhani, which is an Ethnic Village Resort. It opens at 5 p.m. every day and I would suggest not to miss the experience if you have some time. You will get each kind of food there that you can relate to a Rajasthani. Moreover, there were storied of the Rajput being well-displayed with Camel rides, Bullock rides, Elephant rides provided at minimal cost. At intervals open shows were also going on in the park area, glimpses of which are below:

But the most attractive part of the place is its dinner, served guilelessly in a Rajasthani way, accompanied with all the heartiness of a Rajasthani. The food is more than I can describe and no less for an enthusiastic food aficionado. All we ate could not be clicked as we were too busy savoring the tastes. And entry to the resort with the food came at a price of Rs. 700 per plate only.
