Restaurant Review

Food treat in Udaipur, Rajasthan

I was in Udaipur, Rajasthan for last 3 days on invitation by a friend who is running a global software firm there. He had hosted me in his house and took me to delicious Rajasthani Vegetarian cuisine for every meal – thoroughly enjoyed the delicacies.

The first day the lunch was in a local dhaba restaurant in the city. We had delicious Masala Papad and a Lachha Paratha with generous amount of ghee on top along with Paneer Butter Masala.

Dinner was home cooked at my host’s house – Rotis, Bindhi fry, Rice & Ker Sangri (a desert vegetable made as a pickle) which instantly became my favourite.

For the second day we had dinner in the Sunset Terrace Restaurant in Udaipur Palace grounds on the bank of Lake pichola. Dining here is an experience of a life time; with the view of Aravali Hills, Taj Lake Palace, Jag Mandir and the glowing palace behind you, it’s lovely. Since we had a heavy lunch I settled for a simple dinner of a salad, noodles and Strawberry Chilli juice.
