Short description – in case u r in a hurry:

This Foodie madness post is a part of a series called Culinary pilgrimage – On a weekend in August 15 we decided to travel to Jodhpur on Culinary pilgrimage. A 2 day trip to Jodhpur just to eat out at the numerous streetfood shops that have survived over time……….We ended up eating at 11 places in a span of 48 hours & spent a total of approx Rs. 1850 & then we dined at Jodhpur fort for Rs. 3000. The cost of staying at Jodhpur & travelling to Jodhpur from Delhi was, needless to say, quite a few times more.

The shop was very well lit, spic & span, looked hygenic. It had elements of a 90 year old shop but renovation had made it look new but retro.

The walls were made of wooden panels. They had nice pictures on them. I remember seeing a Child’s drawing that depicted hand – churning of lassi.

Detailed description – in case u hv the time to njoy reading:

Makhania Lassi – this was one of its kind. As per the website of the company, ‘The Makhaniya Lassi is prepared with highly compressed curd, ingredients like cardamon, kewda and sugar add to the taste of Makhaniya Lassi.’

This lassi is made from hung curd. That lends creaminess and smoothness. Then milk is used as the base instead of water. That makes it richer. Kewra surely made its presence felt. Cardamom also made its presence felt. Sweetness was on slightly higher side in the liquid.

The lassi was topped with a generous helping of malai – there were chunks of good curd in that topping. The curd was sour and it counter balanced the sweetness of the liquid.

Besan Ki chakki was an intense square sweet made from besan. Constant stirring on heat with sugar and ghee had given a slightly burnt feel that was very enjoyable. The sweetness of the sweet was optimum and the texture was daanedar. The sweet was topped with warq. Rate the sweet 4.5/5
