Rajasthan is one of my favourite countries in India. One of the bigger reason being their authentic and delicious food and their hospitality. Travel anywhere in Rajasthan and you’ll notice how the settings are always old, beautiful and majestic, and proceedings always polished and hip. The history and culture of Rajasthan are still alive and breathing through their magnificent palaces and rich cuisine.
I got an opportunity, yet again, to experience the opulence of Rajasthan at Jamavar, The Leela. This time, Chef Surender Mohan curated a menu that comprised of most popular dishes from different parts of Rajasthan. The flavours were finger-licking good. From appetizers to desserts, the standards only kept risings with every course. When asked for the secret behind such a succulent regal spread, words like traditional Rajgharana recipes, authentic ingredients and desi ghee fell on our ears.
