Barf Ka Gola

It will always take you back to 90s weddings where every kid would be having barf ka gola. Although it has become less popular now but it still holds the authenticity it held some 10 years back. The magic of grind ice and different flavours is one such you won’t ever forget.

Pyaz ki Kachori and Jalebi

This is a typical Marwari breakfast leaving you with a sweet and spicy mouth early in the morning. You might have had jalebis at many places but Pyaz ki Kachori, exceptionally and exclusively belongs to Jaipur. Rawat Mishthan Bhandar says a big NO to tamarind chutney with kachori as it overpowers its taste

Bombay Sandwich

When Bombay Sandwich entered the streets of Jaipur, it became one of the trendiest dishes and still continues to be the best and satiating dishes you will have on the streets of Jaipur.
It never happens that one goes to Bapu Bazar for shopping and comes back without having a bite of Bombay Sandwich.
Coriander chutney on one side and tomato ketchup on other, filled with veggies and garnished with fine savouries, it is a burst of chaat flavours stuffed between breads.

Faluda Kesar Kulfi

While the streets are filled with sour and spicy treat, you cannot stop your temptation of a sweet dish in the end. Instead of choosing your regular ice-cream bar, go for this Faluda Kesar Kulfi. Kulfi is already a flavoursome sweet, topping of faluda makes it stand out among all other sweet dishes. The best aura of having it is not sitting in a hot-shot restaurant but to have it standing in Masala Chowk or Street where it belongs.

Who does not like potato filled deep fried crisp? Samosa is love of India and the most convenient street food. People generally like to have a samosa with tea. It is best served hot with coriander and tamarind chutney.
