Apart from the historic forts, lakes, palaces and temples, Rajasthan is also known worldwide for its handicrafts, Jodhpuri juttis, metal works and jewellery. To experience Rajasthans true essence, a visit to the local markets and the monuments is a must. From markets like Bapu Bazaar, Hathipole Bazaar, Nai Sadak and Sadar Bazar to the majestic hill-forts, every corner of the state echoes its rich history and culture.

A royal feast

Another entrancing segment to never miss while in Rajasthan is the drool-worthy and versatile food. A trip to Rajasthan is incomplete if you fail to try the Rajasthani cuisine which offers a wide variety of food.

With every bite you take, you will taste the locally sourced produce. The war-prone lifestyle of the region in the old times and the scarcity of water and fresh green vegetables has an influence over Rajasthani food. Food items that could survive days and would not need reheating were preferred. Rajasthan is also the state with the highest vegetarian population in India with over 70% of the population being vegetarians.

But with the influence of the Rajputana,  you can also find varieties in non-vegetarian cuisine here. Laal Maas, Safed Maas, Jungli Maas, Khaad Khargos and Game Meat are some of the few.

Rajasthan’s sweets and snacks need no introduction. They are quite popular, and not only in the country but globally as well. When in Rajasthan, do not fail to try the Ghewar, Baalushahi, Besan Chakki, Gujia and Dil Khushhal. Unlike everywhere else, sweet dishes are never addressed as desserts in Rajasthan. This is because, in Rajasthanis serve sweets before, after and even during the meal. Shahi Gatte, Kadhi, Bajre ki Roti, Daal Baati are a few other authentic Rajasthani must-trys.
