Jaipur is a synonym for food. You can spot a number of makeshift patisseries in every nook. There are lots of options from fine dining restaurants to local food options. Also, Rome in the open bazaars, and indulge in some local delicacies. Bite into the amazing pyaajkachoris, bhujia, dal baati, mawa and samosas. Do not leave that sweet tooth unsatiated; do try some churma, balushahi and ghevar. Is your mouth watering?
