If you are in Jaipur for 24 hours here are some must eats and places to visit, ranging from street side, to dining like royalty.
On the way to Jaipur – Stop and have lunch at Samode Palace
Must try street food…Kachoris!
The special kachoris you find in Jaipur are absolutely drool-worthy. This crispy fried puffed-up snack is the favourite of many. Either it is stuffed with onion or lentil and both are equally delicious. I recommend the moong dal stuffed kachori with Tamarind Chutney from Laxmi Misthan Bhandar, a vegetarian restaurant in the Old City that’s been going strong since 1954.
Cafe with a view…
For a view of Jaipur’s most iconic landmark, head to The Tattoo Cafe & Lounge and take refuge from the heat with a cold juice or milkshake! They also serve delicious food and so it makes a fabulous lunch spot or snack spot during a day of sightseeing.
Dine like royalty at Suvarna Mahal, Rambagh Palace
A cooking demonstration at Ikaki Niwas
For a more interactive experience go for a cooking demonstration at Ikaki Niwas, a fabulous homestay in Jaipur, where you can learn how to make a traditional Rajasthani meal led by the lovely Chandrika. We learned how to make Rajasthani Papad Sabzi, Chapatis and a wheat flour Halwa for dessert.
You will also enjoy a sumptuous dinner and be able to mingle with the friendly host family that run the homestay.
