I will take you around my beautiful Jaipur during this 2-hour heritage food tour in the walled city of Jaipur. I am a complete food lover and will let you sample some of the best food Jaipur has to offer. The food tour shall take you to the age-old shops selling traditional sweets and popular savory dishes. After all, there is no better way to get to know a culture than through the journey of your tastebuds. Let me share the flavours of my home town with you.
As you peruse the alleyways of enticing smells, you will have the chance to taste the namkeen (or namkin) meaning savory or salty snacks. So-called because of its connection to the word ’namak’ in Hindi, meaning salt. One of the most famous in Rajasthan is Pyaz ki kachori, which hails from neighboring Jodhpur. It is a spicy vegetarian snack made with fried dough stuffed with onions, potatoes and, of course, mouthwatering spices. In Rajasthan, Pyaz ki kachori are typically served with chutney as a beloved breakfast snack.
For those with a sweeter tooth, ghewar (or ghever) is a must-try during your visit to the Pink City. Resembling a quiche or a sweet round tart, ghewar is typically eaten during the Teej festival, the Hindu celebration of the coming monsoon season. During this time, mothers will give their married daughters gifts as part of the Sindhara ritual, including the traditional ghewar. Crunchy and chewy, it is made from ghee, flour and sugar syrup. What does it taste like? Well you’ll have to come on the tour and find out for yourself!
