    Muskan Midway: great Indian food

    by uglyscot Updated Dec 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the restaurants on the road from Jaipur to Delhi. The decor and facilities are quite basic- metal tables and chairs with much laundered ethnic cloths. The toilet was so-so.
    The clientele were mostly Indian.

    CDs {Indian] and books[ mainly in English], souvenirs and clothes were on sale, but the prices were high.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered malai kofta for 260 rupees. It was tasty.
    I had pineapple juice, but it came in a can, for 50 rupees

    Rajasthan local Dishes: Main Dishes

    by RAJASTHANBYCAR Updated Sep 13, 2007

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gram flour is a major ingredient here and is used to make some of the delicacies like Khata, Gatte Ki Sabzi and Pakodi. Powdered lentils are used for Mangodi and Papad. Bajra and corn are used all over the state for preparations of Rabdi, Khichdi and Rotis.

    A soup of legumes, flavoured with red chilli peppers, yoghurt or milk and sometimes a vegetable such as Okra, Jackfruit, Eggplant, Mustard or Fenugreek leaf. The wealthy can afford to eat meat regularly, but many abstain for religious reasons. Though the Rajasthani kitchen was able to create much from little, it had also to cater to different communities with their own ritual observances.

    Thali Wow!!!! Food

    It is a wonderful restaurant with both Indian and Continental choices. I have been to the Indian part. the food is very good. But, what stands out is the variety in the serving. u get to know the courses on offer and the chef is very much willing to explain to you the delicacy and the preparation.
    A treat.

    Vegitables of Rajasthan: Cooking in Rajasthan

    by RAJASTHANBYCAR Updated Apr 20, 2007

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The finest cuisine in India was derived from the Mughals and, along with European cooking, influenced the royal kitchens of India.But in Rajasthan the common man's kitchen remained untouched. Rajasthani cooking was influenced by the war -like lifestyle of its inhabitants and the availability of ingredients in this region.
    Cooking here in Rajasthan has its own unique flavour and the simplest ingredients go into preparing most dishes. Scarcity of water and fresh green vegetables have had their impact on the cooking in the desert areas of Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Barmer. Instead of water the women prefer to use milk, buttermilk and clarified butter. Dried lentils and beans from indigenous plants are used liberally. Gram flour is a major ingredient and is used to make delicacies like 'khata', 'ghatta ki sabzi' and 'pakodi'. Bajra and corn, the staple grains, are used to make rotis, 'rabdi' and 'kheechdi'; and various chutneys are made from locally available spices like turmeric, coriander, mint and garlic.

    Hotel Jo Hukam: Great place to eat on the highway!!

    by Justin_goa Updated Mar 14, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a vegetarian restaurant and the right place stop for a good meal anytime when you travel between Ajmeer and Jaipur.

    Favorite Dish: Almost everything what they serve is homely,good and authentic!!
    A lady manages this place, who still mourns for the demise of her husband, and keeps her husbands dream project doing well. Very friendly atmosphere and a woman's touch could be felt in everything as you enter this small restaurant and craft shop. There is a craft shop as well. The collection of items comes from all parts of India and well displayed.

    Chokhi Dhani - Authentic Rajasthani Cuisine: A Complete Rajasthani Theme Park Experience

    by phadke2001 Updated Jan 21, 2006

    Chokhi Dhani Village has been the mirror of Rajasthani culture since 1989. Started as a restaurant, over the years it has evolved into a theme park showcasing the authentic village life of one of the most colorful states in the country.

    Your initial reaction to Chokhi Dhani might be one of a tourist trap it is one of the best ways in which you can experience a Rajasthani village, food & buskers in one place.

    Food: The dining hall is renowned for the mouth watering and typical Rajasthani food, served to you on a leaf platter in the tradition of Manuhaar. Let me warn you that the food is heavy with ghee & butter used in profusion but the taste is awesome so be prepared to over indulge. The service is a bit too intrusive and if you dont like wasting food you will find it offensive as the waiters continue to serve you if you empty your plate so you have to waste some food if you want them to stop.

    Buskers: The whole place has a myriad of buskers. Some interesting ones are listed below.

    Kalbeli Dance: Traditional snake charmers, the folk dancers sway to the lilt of the ?Been? and beat of the drum. Their graceful and sinuous dance movements captivate all visitors

    Bhopa Bhopi: Chokhi Dhani Village features true children of the desert. They sing and dance to the old folk songs of Rajasthan. You would find it hard not to join in.

    Puppet Show: The colorful Puppet Show transports you into the world of valiant Kings, beautiful princesses and all powerful magicians. The puppeteer makes episodes and scenes from their lives come alive to give you a glimpse of their lifestyle.

    Bamboo Balancing: See this gutsy feat live. The brave artiste balances himself on a bamboo without the protection of a safety net beneath.

    Fortune Teller Parrot: Let the parrot pick the card that predicts your future and answer your queries. This is a traditional way of knowing about future and has been practiced in Egyptian and Roman civilizations as well.

    Favorite Dish: As you enter Chokhi Dhani you will be greeted in the traditional way by a lady who will apply kumkum to your forehead and shower flower petals on you. You then make your way towards the dining hall through an open ground full of buskers. The dining hall is typically full and you might have to wait for 30 - 45 minutes but then there is no dearth of things to do here and the only risk you run is of missing your seat because you were too engrossed in watching some dance of magic trick.

    The food is awesome and heavy. Good for an experience but certainly deadly if eaten everyday : ). Ker sangri, kadhi, khichadi, bhakri, papad are some of the specialities. They serve white butter in small terracotta plates for eating with the bhakri (thick bread made from millet flour) and buttermilk in terracotta glasses.

    La Purezza, Jaisalmer: A great Italian Restaurant in Jaisalmer

    by darthmilmo Written Nov 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While staying in Jaisalmer, I finished the day eating at La Purezza, a delicious Italian restaurant inside the fort. I don't usually eat western food while traveling abroad, especially with the exotic and delicious Indian cuisine, but tonight was an exception. Eating atop their terrace, I managed to see the beautiful city lights below. I also caught eyes of a large bat population waking up in the night and going out hunting for food.

    Various shops at Sardar Bazar, Jodhpur: Best fruit shakes and lassis at Jodhpur

    by darthmilmo Written Nov 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking down the main bazar, I entered a city gate into the walled in Sardar Bazar, which has its own distinct feeling. It's divided into 4 sections: produce, spices, clothes and fabrics, and hardware. In the center lies the impressive Clock Tower. The lassi shop inside one of the gates makes delicious lassis. There are also two fruit juices stands inside the compound with killer mango shakes.

    Sunset Cafe: A lovely place to enjoy the sunset in Pushkar

    by darthmilmo Written Nov 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A good way to end the day at Pushkar is at the Sunset Cafe. I joined a few friends for a bite to eat. It?s a beautiful restaurant overlooking the Ghats and the lake. It?s a great place to admire how the town lights up after dark. The food is not the best in India, but they do have western plates for those seeking that type of food. I personally would recommend it for the views? so have a lassi or chai instead of a meal. Oh, the western deserts are really good here.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ah, the tea... how can you forget.... all the memories.... everywhere I go in India I was offered tea... one day in Bundi (Rajasthan), Raj, my host in spotted me in the street and invited me to his project (a hotel he is building) for a cup of chai (masala tea). Indians take their tea with milk, sugar, and spices. It's delicious! The secluded terrace of his allowed me to see the night fair taking place below on the street.

    Sathi's Cold Drink shop: Best lassis in Bundi

    by darthmilmo Written Nov 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found just what I needed waiting for me in town, a delicious lassi from Sathi's Cold Drink shop. Sathi makes one o the best lassis I’ve had so far. They're made out of saffron, pistachios, nuts, raisins, and more. Ask anyone in the old town and they'll point you on the right direction.

    Sold everywhere in India: Thali and Indian Cuisine

    by darthmilmo Written Nov 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had a delicious home cooked a thali at the Kishan Niwas Guesthouse in Bundi. These basic dinners are available all throughout India. They usually have one to three dishes (mainly vegetables, but sometimes with cheese, egg or meat), rice, dal (lentils), curd (yogurt) or raita (desert with yogurt), papad (tostada), and chappatti (pita or tortilla looking flat bread made out of wheat). Each region varies in how spicy or sweat the dish is. At times, the chappatti is substituted by nan (oven baked flat bread), parathas (flat bread that may or may not have a filling), or a massive portion of rice (as in Bengal). I truly think Raj's wife (see my Bundi tips) makes the best chapattis in India!

    Sold almost everywhere in India: Lassi

    by darthmilmo Written Nov 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A lassi is an Indian drink made out of milk and yogurt. It's really hard to explain unless you've had it for it doesn't quite have the flavor of yogurt or milkshake. It's definitely good to have any time of the day. It can be either be sweat or dry. It also can be combining with fruit, spices, or nuts.
