Now, this tasty street food of Jaipur is available even in foreign countries such as Canada, SriLanka, and England.
3. Bikaneri Bhujia
Besan (lentil flour) is the basic ingredient. The Jaipuris are skilled enough to make a range of bhujias using just the besan and moth beans. The taste differs only slightly between the bhujias due to using different flavoring herbs. They are identified by non-Rajasthanis only by shape.
Tourists to Jaipur or to any other part of Rajasthan used to buy the Bilaneri bhujia in bulk and take them to their hometown for distribution among relatives and friends.
4. Pyaaz Kachori
Oh yes, pyass (onion) kachoris, the street foods in Jaipur are the most sought-after snack among the local residents and the tourists.
Kachoris are fried pastry with some fillings that enhance the taste.
People throng the Rawat Misthan Bhandar throughout the day to eat this Jaipur street food specialty.
5. Mirchi Bada
This Jaipur street food is a poor man’s breakfast. Now, these Street Foods in Jaipur have become a favorite evening snack for everyone without exception. Any snack that has ‘besan’ as its basic ingredient becomes delicious when it is deep fried.
In other parts of India such as Bangalore or Madras, this green chili snack is called ‘mirchi bajji’. This Street Food in Jaipur is also available in restaurants of Jaipur.
Instead of using green chili, potato or banana wedges are also dipped in the batter of besan and deep fried.
Served with green chutney, mirchi bada makes an all-time favorite street food in India.
6. Kathi Roll
Slightly expensive because of the filling, this famous street food in Jaipur is a favorite among students who assume they are eating healthy food whereas it is equally a junk food like another street food.
The Indian flatbread called ‘roti’ is rolled after a range of food such as vegetables and cottage cheese are spread over the roti and then rolled. Though Kathi roll is Indian street food, it is eaten in American style by dipping it in tomato ketchup, only it is diluted in Jaipur street food kiosks.
Malpaua is a sweet dish that is served on a porcelain plate in Jaipur streets. It is very different in taste when compared with other North Indian sweets.
8. Alwar ka Mawa
Alwar is a city in Rajasthan state. Mawa is milk sweet that is predominantly sold as street food and in sweet stalls also. It is more of condensed milk cooked as solid.
Dried fruits or raisins are used to garnish the sweet.
This is a very delicious sweet which, once tasted will make you want more and more. It has a heavenly fragrance too because of using pure saffron shreds which also makes the curd turn into a lovely yellow.
Recently innovated versions of these Jaipur street foods include mango as a flavor. When a few seeds of cardamom are added, Shrikhand can make you visit Jaipur frequently.
10. Ghevar Rabri
Rabri is basically Punjabi sweet and the Ghevar Rabri of Jaipur is a specialty of Rajasthan State. I read this sweet delicacy is seasonal only. It is made and sold only during a particular festival known as ‘Raksha Bhandan’ a day for showing affection by brothers and sisters.
