Local Food and Cuisine
Ajmer's cuisine derives much of its spice, excitement and colour from the street food here. The must haves here are the Chaat, Samosa, Kachori and Kadi-Bhujje. These are popular and widespread in Ajmer's street and can be the most enjoyable. Other than these, Ajmer has a number of restaurants whints which offer various vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
Rajasthan is much of what its culture is and the culture here derives a lot of its colour, festivity, significance and of course, spice, often literally from the diverse and exquisite cuisine here. The cuisine of Rajasthan is primarily vegetarian and offers a fabulous variety of mouthwatering dishes. The food here is such that it is suitable for the weather, availability of water, and other environmental factors of the area.
The delicacies of the state are truly some of the richest, unique and most loved preparations of India. Names such as Dal Bati Churma, Moong Dal ka Halwa, Ghevar, Rabdi and numerous more are popular all across, especially in North India, with their popularity spreading beyond the confines of the state, while your visit to Rajasthan is only complete with a splendid and authentic Rajasthani thali.
