Jodhpur apart from Rajasthani food, has plenty of food varieties including all cuisines from Indian to Chinese to continental to mughlai.
Jodhpur food represents the royalty of city.
Every outsider coming must eat these food items which are delicious and flavourful as well.
Lets take a dig without further a do.
There are so many varitoes in namkeens, sweets and many other food items.
Jodhpur food contains lal mirchi powder and garam masala which doubled the taste and originality of spices.
Now come let’s discuss about the food of jodhpuri rasoi-
Some famous namkeens of Jodhpur, these are very tasty, spicy and full of flavours to make one crazy about the taste, like-
The famous Janta Sweet House- Janta sweet house is famous for its various kind of sweets and namkeen. They prepares the best quality. They have so many products like Dry fruits,fast food, icecream and shakes, Indian cuisines, khakhre, namkeens, papad, pickels, snacks, south Indian, sweets and much more.
We had Chola bhatura & Makkhaniya Lassi there :
Mishrilal : Just inside the sourthern gate of Sadar market, this place is nothing fancy, but whips up the most superb creamy makhaniya lassis. If you are travelling to jodhpur trip is incomplete without a visit to this shop. From Lassi to Sohan halwa, this place has it all.Lassi with malai on top oh my my amazing , truly one of the best I have ever had.Guyss don't miss this place to eat.
We had Sweet Mawa kachori & Lassi from there
Also we had Following things for these all above places
the city is very much fond of mirchivada. You can find it at every corner of the city, but places are famous for its extra spicy taste, janta sweet house serves it in better way. Once you will taste it, you would like to have it again. These are green chillies dipped in besan and deep fried, served with chutney.
There are two types of kachori, namkeen and sweet mava kachori. They are so delicious. They can be namkeen with spicy potato stuffing in it, it can be sweet with dry fruits stuffing in it, dipped in sugar syrup. Both are scrumptious and unforgettable. It’s all depend on your choice which one would you like to prefer. Only a thought can make you mouthwatering.
We had Samosa from Shahi Samosa , It was a Huge version of samosa that we eat in both India !! haha…
Jhankar choti haveli : It's a beautiful restaurant enlivened by rich Indian culture and heritage.the food here is ravishing and delightful . The best part of it isvits interiors , styled and decor totally give you the feel of royalty. Whether it's about light snacks or a perfect meal restaurant serves at it Best. It was 5 minutes of walking from our hotel so we preferred there to have our one time meal.
Poha is simple but very delightful in taste here. They add onion, tamotoes, pomegranate seeds and aaloo bhujiya to it, which added extra flavour to this simple dish. We all make it at home in breakfast usually with Rye and tomatoes only, but this city has its own way to make a simple dish a innovative one. Sweet and salty in taste..!! Yummm.
Also We had Tea & Butter toast with it!
~ Bal samand Lake palace :
A meal in bal samand lake palace in jodhpur comes with spectacular royal feeling.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. A bar/lounge open for drinks.
Two days stay in this palace was the best decision we made.
Enjoying the meal at such royal place, and being pampered by the staff was great honour for us.
Breakfast menu-(healthy + full of taste)
Fresh fruits- bananas, pineapple, papaya, apple.
Toaster bread butter with tea
Fresh fruit juice
And much more.
First day we ordered a plate of fresh fruits, toaster bread butter and tea and idli sambhar.
As breakfast was included to our package. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So we’re happy and fully satisfied with the quality and the quantity of food.Crispy toaster bread with butter…ummmm..!!! Just wow..
Idli sambhar- soft and smooth idli, with hot and spicy flavourful sambhar was enough to make you happy. Even this dish is one of my favourite ones.
The staff was so kind and helpful. It feels good when chef of the restaurant personally comes to you and asked you about the food and any if any complaints regarding the taste, quality of food.
After breakfast we went back into our room, waiting for the next meal and we’re excited to know now what’s new is next..!!
Gypsy: It's a popular and best option which serves all kind of food, from continental to Indian, South Indian, jodhpuri thali and much more. We leave from our hotel and it took half an hour to reach there. Crowdy but good option.
We already have heard much about daal bati choorma, so we go with the Daal Bati Choorma. Awesome presentation, with their traditional thali, bati, fried daal, garlic chutney, papad, mixed pickle, choorma ( besan laddu) , bati dipped in deshi ghee. Delicious in taste.
Cafe Mehran: The other fantastic meal we had was the pavbhaji at mehrangarh fort.cafe mehran is very well maintained in the heart of Mehrangarh fort. You must take a pit stop at cafe to reenergise yourself since it's a long step climb upto the mehrangarh. We simply loved the place for its beautiful blue interior and ambience. The place is decorated with the paintings of the Royal’s and the previous kings of Jodhpur. Other then decor, confident, turbaned, uniformed, well cultured staff to greet you. You will actually feel you are dining at a palace. we ordered a plate of Pav bhaji and a chilled mango shake. Mango shake was enough refreshing and cool to make you feel fresh and relaxing. Pav bhaji served with butter and onion was so tasty. Crispy Pav and hot and spicy bhaji perfect for our hunger. We simply love the place and the food as well. So guyss while planning a trip to jodhpur must remember these things to double your fun food at such amazing places.
Bal samand Lake palace:
There was so much in menu can’t mention each and every thing but yes can share you about whatever we ate there at lunch.
We both are much fond of palak panner, ordered just one palak panner, one garlic naan and one tandoori roti, pineapple raita, papad, achar and chutney is complementary with every meal in Rajasthan, this was enough for both of us.
Palak panner smelling so good, only a bite and we just loved the taste, soft paneer and buttery gravy was just too good.
Garlic naan and tandoori roti, easy to chew.
No doubt whole meal was delectable and mouthwatering.
Brownie with ice cream
Perfect shape, evenly moist, soft, equally sweet served
Hanwant mahal- There are certain places one must visit in jodhpur. We experienced food from cafes to restaurants and now we went to our next food destination mahant mahal,beautiful property. Hanwant mahal is in the vicinity of Umaid bhawan palace and is known as hunting palace of the king.
This simply means after his hunt,king would head down to this palace with his friends to relax, have a meal / drinks.
The Mahal is setup over three floors with the fountain at its entrance.
The first floor has the indoor seatings of the restaurant as individual sections( depending upon the number of people you are with), general setting with live music playing on the other side of the restaurant.
Second floor, is the outdoor seating area which is divided into two sections. As soon as we entered the second floor, we spotted the spectacular view of Umaid bhawan palace from every corner of the floor. There we sat down on the couches with a breathtaking view of Umaid Bhavan palace in a perfect weather, making our food experience more memorable.
Settle down comfortably and then ordered a paneer paneer Hari mirch.
Paneer hari Mirch- Traditionally first they served us a dry papad with chutney.you will love the food as well.
Third and the last floor is the whole roof top setup to enjoy your meal under the moonlight. The view of Umaid Bhavan palace is more beautiful here.
The place is beautifully setup giving you a feel of being amidst the royal family and you will
Pampered like you belong to the royal family.
We had at this amazing palace, with amazing service, delectable food and the experience that we will remember as long as we live.
