Culinary Delights of Jodhpur: A Foodie's Paradise

Jodhpur, known as the ‘City of Blue’ for its architecture, is also a place for mouthwatering, spice-blended with sweetness that kicks your taste buds. From sumptuous cuisine to local Jodhpur kachori, here is a place to try world-class cuisine. The Rajasthani cuisine is highly nutritious due to using millet, pulses, lentils, and legumes to replace the vegetables. The food here is spicier compared to other Indian cuisines because of the world-famous red chilies of Rajasthan.

Mirchi Bada
One of the famous snacks of Rajasthan. Split green chilies are stuffed with potatoes and fennel seeds, then coated with besan batter and deep-fried until golden brown. The crispiness of the bada serves as the best snack for the evening with your chai.

Laal Maas
Rajasthan is mainly vegetarian, yet this lip-smacking lamb curry is relished best with bajra ki roti, although rice can also be a great option. The unique feature of this hot, spicy, and incredibly rich preparation is its fiery red color which it gets from the liberal use of red chilies.


Mawa Kachori
Native Rajasthani have the tradition of coupling the main course with sweets. Unlike other kachori which serve as a snack, this is rather a sweet dessert. The dough is stuffed with mawa, locally popular as khova, deep-fried, and savored with sugar syrup.

Bajre ki Khichdi
Bajra, the main crop of Rajasthan, is a major ingredient of cuisine. This highly nutritious black millet khichidi loaded with the flavor of ghee is a comfort breakfast food.


Dal Baati Churma
Dal Baati Churma is the state’s traditional signature dish. Baati is a hard, unleavened bread baked in the desert regions of Rajasthan. Baati is well-known for its long shelf life and the fact that it requires minimal water to make. It is most often served with dal (lentil curry). Dal is produced from lentils, whereas churma is a finely ground wheat mixture mashed and cooked in ghee with jaggery or sugar.

Malai Ghevar
Ghevar is a doughnut-shaped sweet made with ghee, multipurpose flour, and sugar syrup. It is an authentic Rajasthani delicacy. The ghevar is dipped in the malai and coated with saffron and dry fruits.


Makahaniya Lassi
Due to the scarcity of water, the people of Rajasthan are adapted to milk, buttermilk, and yogurt. The makahaniya lassi is the special kind of lassi popular in Jodhpur. The appetizing flavor of lassi comes from the soaked saffron, badam, and pista which are blended with the essence of elaichi and rose water.
