The historical lanes and streets of Jaipur are imbued with imprints of gastronomic glory. On this food tour, we are visiting some of the iconic street food places in the Old city which entail fascinating
legacy. The first stop was Gulab Chai Wale. This small shop is a hit with chai lovers from all walks of life. On our host Vinayak’s recommendation we tried the bun maska and masala chai combo.
The second stop was Shree Shyam Dal Pakwan Center where we tried the famous Sindhi dish called dal pakwan with mirchi ke tapore. The dal mixed with chutneys and spices was quite delicious and zesty.
The third stop was Sampat Kachori Bhandar whose potato masala stuffed kachori are the talk of the town. Contrary to our anticipation, the masala was quite mild and flavoursome. This was followed by two remarkable hing kachori from two renowned places named Sampat Kachori Bhandar and Puran Kachori Bhandar. At the first place it was served with yogurt while at the second it was served a spicy green chutney.
The penultimate stop was Gulab Chand Dairy where we tried a unique dessert called kesar pista makhan. This inhouse pistachio and saffron flavoured butter was simply divine. The last stop of this tour was Bhawar Lal Kailash Chand Halwai which is an over a century old establishment. Here we had moongthal and gulab kesari. Both these sweets were masterpieces because of their incredible taste and forms.
