Delectable Delicacies at Chandragupta Restaurant from The City of Jaipur

Rocky and Mayur have ventured out to explore food from all parts of India and curate videos on I'm contributing my part by relishing my favorite dishes at Chandragupta Restaurant
and sharing my views with you all!
You can also upload your video review on AskMe and stand a chance to meet Rocky and Mayur.
My heart feels a distinct inclination towards Rajasthan. The fondest memories of my childhood are centered around different parts of Rajasthan. I am ever ready to visit any part of Rajasthan because I adore the rich heritage, folk dances, colorful outfits and ofcourse the yummilicious food of the Royal state which reflects Indianness in true sense.

The absolutely scrumptious Rajasthani cuisine is one of my favourite in comparison to other cuisines, primarily for the reason that there is fabulous variety of mouthwatering dishes most of which are pure vegetarian, so I relish them a lot. :) Its been almost an year that I have not visited Rajasthan, but the taste and aroma of spicy Rajasthani food is still fresh in my memories.

I have experienced the dishes and sweets of many places in Rajasthan in past years like Jodhpur, Ganganagar, Bikaner, Sawai Madhopur, Pushkar etc. And as you travel from one part of the state to another, you'll find that every region has something unique, which reflects in its food as well. But I bet that the place which can boast of serving the most authentic taste is Jaipur.

Anyone digging into a Rajasthani Thali in Jaipur can consider himself fortunate to be at foodies's paradise.
Actually its always better to settle for a complete platter i.e. Thali to explore elaborate taste of all the dishes in one meal. Rajasthani Thali is a brilliant offering of different breads, curries, pickles and desserts on a plate. The Bajra Rotla, Makki Ki Roti, Kadhi Pakoda, Sangre Ki Sabzi, Besan Gatte Ki sabzi with Malpua, Mawa Kachori and Imarti actually leave anyone delightfully satiated.

But Rajasthani food is incomplete without the mention of the most famed dish Daal-Baati-Churma. The baati which are flaky, round balls made of flour roasted on traditional firewood are traditionally served with dollop of ghee and panchmel daal. Usually you find the baatis stuffed with onion, peas, lentils with some spices. You can crush the baati in the daal to taste every spoonful with yummy flavour. The churma is the accompanying sweet which is actually prepared by crushing the unsalted and unstuffed baatis mixed with ghee and jaggery (gud).

If you are yet to give yourself this divine experience, you shouldn't and can’t return without trying the flagship dish of Rajasthani cuisine Daal baati in Jaipur.

I am no way leaving you without my recommendations for best places to eat Daal Baati in Jaipur to tantalize your taste buds with the royal taste of the Rajasthani cuisine and to have a perfectly filling meal of the delicious Daal, Baati and Churma where this sensational meal is cooked and served in the most authentic way.

By the time my post has reached its climax, I am craving for a spicy Rajasthani platter, how about you guys ;) If you have visited Jaipur and tasted some tasty dishes there, do share your experiences. I would love to receive your valuable inputs.
