1.      Pyaz Kachori at Janta Sweet Home

Try the famous Pyaz Kachori if you are looking for a pocket-friendly and gratifying breakfast option in Jodhpur. Crispy kachoris, stuffed with tangy and spicy fillings, melt in your mouth effortlessly. 

The locals prefer having it alongside Mirchi Vada and Mawa Kachori. 

One of the best places to have this must-try food in Jodhpur is Janta Sweet Home. It is a well-managed and hygienic family restaurant cum sweet shop located right in the city centre.

2.      Makhaniya Lassi at Shri Mishrilal

Once you are done with Kachoris and Vadas, your palate will crave something sweet. And this longing can be satisfied effortlessly by Makhaniya Lassi. Unlike the lassi commonly available in North India, Makhaniya Lassi has a unique taste. 

It is a thick, yellowish and creamy concoction of buttermilk. Makhaniya Lassi comes in different flavours- Mango, Gulab, Elaichi, Saffron etc.

Pick your favourite at the famous Shri Mishrilas Hotel. It's located within walking distance of Janta Sweet Home. 

3.      Gulab Jamun Ki Sabzi at Shandar Sweet Home 

No, it does not taste sweet! 

Rather, these favourite Gulab Jamuns are deep-fried, just like koftas, and then dipped into a savoury, spicy gravy. The gravy's thick consistency and rich colour come from the paste of cashew nuts and tomatoes, respectively.

To enjoy this Jodhpur famous food, you can visit Shandar Sweet Home. A small-sized eatery located in Ratanada, this place serves one of the best Gulab Jamun ki Sabzi in the entire Jodhpur.

4.      Lal Maas at On the Rocks

For all the non-vegetarian foodies out there, Lal Maas can be the ultimate meaty delicacy you have ever tasted! This dish was a part of the royal cuisine, whose origins go hundreds of years back.

The tender mutton chunks soak in every bit of the smoky and spicy flavour. Lal Maas thus can be called the Rajputana counterpart of Mughlai Nalli Nihari. 

While many places serve Lal Maas, some known places are On the Rocks, Kalinga Restaurant, The Currys, and others.

5.      Malai Ghewar at Janta Sweet Home

Malai Ghewar is a popular Marwari sweet and is easily found across Jodhpur. Traditionally, this yummy sweet is prepared around the time of the Teej Festival in Rajasthan. However, selected sweet shops and eateries serve different varieties of Ghewar around the year.

Janta Sweet Home can be the ideal place to taste this delicacy.
