Jaipur, the pink city, offers the best of authentic Rajasthani cuisine, the local dishes you must try can range from the most delicious dal, baati and churma which comes on top of the list of anyone who plans to try Rajasthani food to the spicy Laal Maas
which is an absolute delight for non vegetarians.

There is an amazing variety on offer and one can try everything from the most awesome sweets like Ghevar which is a speciality of this royal city to piping hot ‘pyaaz kachoris’ which are an absolute favourite of the locals with a cup of tea.

There are a number of restaurants in Jaipur that serve the authentic local cuisine. Here are a few dishes which you must try:

Dal, Baati and Churma

A combination of three different delicacies, it is a complete meal in itself. The Dal or lentil curry, is served with Baati, a roundel of stuffed flour that is cooked over charcoals. Churma is a sweet dish made with flour, jaggery or sugar and a generous helping of ghee. In terms of flavour, there are a lot of different combinations available like a simple plain baati or stuffed with spicy masalas or dry fruits. The local way to eat is to break the Baati like a roti, mix in some dal and churma, pour lot of ghee over this and relish it.

To enjoy Dal-baati-churma at a nominal expense, check out the dhabas near Sindhi Camp (Central) Bus Stand and Chokhi Dhani on Tonk Road.


A must have during festivals like Teej and Gangaur and available in a lot of varieties like plain or with mawa. It is a deep fried sweet with a sweet crust and is one of the most popular sweets in Rajasthan. You can taste the best Ghevar available at local sweet shops of Jaipur. The best of them are Laxmi Mishthan Bhandar in Johari Bazaar or Rawat Sweets in Sindhi Camp.

Laal Maas

For those who think Rajasthani cuisine is primarily vegetarian have not tasted this spicy delicacy here. Straight from the kitchens of the Royals, the authentic version is no longer restricted to the palace but is found in abundance in Jaipur without which no non-vegetarian meal is ever complete. Made with spicy dry red chillies amongst other spices and red meat, it is the most recommended and popular non vegetarian dish in Jaipur. Both Niros and Handi Restaurant in MI Road are extremely popular for their sumptuous renditions of Laal Maas.

Pyaaz ki Kachori

A kachori filled with pyaaz (onion) and spices, this delicacy is not to be missed. It is available in almost all the local shops. It is the favourite tea time snack. The kachori at Laxmi Mishthan Bhandar is a massive serving and incredible in taste.

Mirchi Vadas

It is as popular as the kachoris in Jaipur- made by dunking green chillies in besan and deep fried. There are local vendors selling these on hand carts by the roadside. The Sodhani Sweets in Bapu Nagar makes excellent mirchi vadas that are a must try.

Gatte ki Sabzi

This popular Rajasthani curry is made by preparing besan gattas separately and then cooking them in a spicy gravy. It is an important part of the Rajasthani thali and is the most popular curry apart from Papad ki Sabzi and Ker Sangri. Many local street food places in Jaipur excel in its sumptuous preparation, but the Sharma Dhaba on Sikar Road and Natraj on MI Road have the most authentic curries which are relished by the locals.

These All eatries are costly.Better taste ,any of Jodhpur misthan Bhandhar's for,a samosa/kachori/mirchi vada.costing 15-20 each.The ghevars can be purchased from Ghee waalon ka rasta,in Johri Baazar, for a price of 300 -500 rupees kg.try to avoid shopping from Johri baazar as its costly.Bapur baazar is good but go for very hard bargain and compare prices in 2-3 shops before finalist deals.
