Once you are done visiting the bird sanctuary and other tourist spots, you might start to feel a little famished. The good thing is, you will be able to spot some restaurant or dhaba closely. As far as local food is concerned, Bharatpur doesn’t really have any trademark specialities. You will get the typical North Indian dishes. However, if you wish to taste some local snacks, here’s what you can try.

  • Alu ki Sabzi (Potato curry)

    You can never go wrong with this. If you are visiting the Rajasthan-UP belt for the first time, you should not go back without tasting this mouth-watering potato dish. You will find it in every menu, be in small dhabas or big hotels. It is essentially small cubes of boiled potatoes and diced tomatoes cooked in spicy gravy. The blend of the north Indian spices gives the dish a unique flavour and the tomatoes add a hint of tanginess.
  • Kachauri

    Thought to originate in Uttar Pradesh or Rajasthan, these can be best described as stuffed donuts and is a very popular snack in these parts. Now, the stuffing can be anything from onion / potato / cottage cheese / lentils and spice mixtures, to sweet fillings made with Khoya and nuts. You must try the Pyaaz Kachori (stuffed with an onion mixture) which can be eaten by itself, or with accompaniments like the Alu ki Sabzi and green chutney. Mawa Kachauri, is another local favourite. It is essentially deep fried bread stuffed with the sweetened mixture of reduced milk solids (Mawa or Khoya), wholesome nuts and saffron, which is dipped into sugar syrup and served hot. Absolutely yummilicious!
  • Rabri

    You will find loads of sweets made from milk or milk products in this region. However, we have chosen to list Rabri, because of its individuality in taste and texture. This is a simple sweet dish made with thickened condensed milk flavoured with cardamom, nuts and raisins. It is quite rich and heavy on the stomach. There is a savoury version of this dish made with pearl millet, buttermilk, onions and spices.

Well that should sustain you for a good long while. And when you start feeling peckish again, go back for the second round.
