Flavours of Jaisalmer

While you are travelling around Rajasthan, one should be prepared to give up all their diet restrictions in order to relish on the delicious food served here and also possibly go into a food coma. After spending two amazing days wandering around the narrow streets of Jaisalmer and several successful culinary bouts, we can happily include this old city in our favourite lists.

Masala Chai

JaisalmerJaisalmer being a tourist city has several eateries that are affordable and offers variety of food like the addictive masala chai, traditional Rajasthani Thaali, English teacakes and yes the government authorized Bhaang. The small city also has a restaurant serving authentic Korean cuisine, which supposedly is the best eatery in town. As much as we wanted to try the Korean place, we decided on hitting the eateries serving the local food and we don’t regret it one bit, as the food was utterly delicious in every place we tried.

On our first night in Jaisalmer, we went to the Trio Restaurant, which is a rooftop restaurant with candle lit in every table, folk singers singing the traditional song and an uninterrupted view of the city. We were given a cozy table set in a corner facing the Tazia Tower.

Gatte ki sabzi

We tried the traditional gatte ki sabzi (steamed gramflour dumpling curry) with butter rotis and mixed fruit lassi. The subzi was mildly spiced, just like how we wanted it and the fruit lassi was out of the world. We loved it so much that we ended up having two glasses each. Trio is located at the centre of the market; few minutes walk from the fort. If you looking for a cozy place offering great food we would definitely recommend this place.

Natraj Thaali

We tried the famous Natraj restaurant next day for lunch and had the delicious thaali meal there. The thaali consisted of Ker sangri, dal kadhi, Gatte ki sabzi, freshly made rotis, rice and Churma for dessert. Ker sangri is a spicy curry made from dried berries and beans and is a speciality of the Thar Desert region. Natraj is a small family run place and is ideal place to put your feet down after the busy day of exploring the city.

A trip to Rajasthan is incomplete if one hasn’t watched the traditional Khalbeliya folk dance. Hence after consulting our hotel manager, we went to Desert Boys Dhani for dinner on our second night. It is an open-air garden restaurant with live Rajasthani folk performance every evening. It is a perfect place to sit back and enjoy the spectacular folk performance along with delicious food.

On our last day in Jaisalmer, we stayed in our Hotel as it was the festival of Holi and the hotel had arranged for special treat for its guests. We were served with the Rajasthani speciality, Dal Baati Churma for dinner in their rooftop restaurant. The freshly baked baati were perfectly done and mixed with the dal and ghee it was utterly lip smacking. Apart from this we also tried the Jaipuri pulao, another delicious mixture of rice, vegetables and wheat dumplings.

We consider a trip to be complete if we are able to combine exploring the particular place and relishing the local veg food. Rajasthan with its long-standing history, breath-taking architecture, colourful decor and delicious food stole our heart right away.

  • Its hard to believe that this magnificent Aqueduct in Segovia was built around 1st century to supply water from the Fuentes Africa river to the city. This was functioning until mid 19th century and has been maintained in an excellent condition and was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the old town in 1985. #TOTSinSpain #segovia #spain #traveldiaries #travelingram #traveladdict #wanderlust #travelblog #igworldclub #IGtravel  #mytravelgram #travelblogger #travelgram #Aroundtheworld #passionpassport #exploringtheglobe  #mytravelgram  #wanderlust #worlderlust #mytinyatlas #welltravelled #travelphotography #traveltheworld #bestplacestogo #instapassport #theglobewanderer #discoverearth #roamtheplanet
